FTP, what is it
If you use our hosting then you will probably have come across it already.In this blog post we will cover FTP, one of the most commonly used methods to move files. We are going to explain in this blog post what exactly FTP is and how you can use it.
What is FTP
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol and it is a method used to send files from a client (local) to a server.At MijnHostingPartner it is so that if you use this method you can place your local files in your web environment.
You can use FTP in different ways, for example, you can do this through command lines.However, there are much easier ways to use it, for example using an FTP program such as Filezilla.You can easily set this up so you can get started within seconds.
FTP can also be used to download files, in some cases even faster than http.You are not only limited to small files, you can even download or upload larger files via FTP.It is also possible to use FTP to create folders and directories, so you can easily change the structure of your web environment to your own liking.
The security of FTP
Of course it is important to take into account the security of the connection when using FTP.FTP is known to have some security holes.
For example, FTP does not use encryption by default but it is possible to use SFTP.You can activate this by setting the encryption in Filezilla to: Requires explicit FTP over TLS.If you get an error message this is not yet implemented on the server you are using.
