Introduction to FTP

What is FTP?

FTP is the language that allows computers to share and transfer files over the internet. The easiest way to transfer files is to use an FTP client. There are many FTP clients available, depending on what type of computer you are using.

A few examples:
Windows Clients:
  • Filezilla
  • CuteFTP
  • WS FTP Pro
Mac OS X Clients:
  • Fetch
  • Transmit
  • Filezilla
One can also navigate an FTP server with a web browser, but that is not as easy as using an FTP client. We have compiled a list of different web pages that contain information about FTP.
