What is FTP and how do I upload my files?

FTP (FileTransferProtocol - File Transfer Protocol) is the protocol used to remotely transfer files from one computer to a  server and vice versa  through a  client  such as  filezilla  or  smartftp .


Tasks that we can perform in addition to transferring files to and from the  server  are deleting server  files  and changing permissions.


 transfer files as binary (binary) or ASCII and this service is available, as long as you have internet connection.


To log in to your  FTP  service, you first need to have access to the username / password that is currently available in your email  activation server.


Here are two examples of how to connect to the  ftp  service using the two most popular logins,  filezilla  and martftp .





First download and install filezilla  on your computer client


Open Filezilla and make the connection according to the following steps.



1. Select  File  ->  Site Manager




2. Add a new  site  and login information by stating the following on the General tab  .
