  Hosting Glossary - File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
» FTP File Transfer Protocol (FTP) This is the process of transfering files to a web site's server. For example: If John Doe were to create his web site on his local computer at home, he would need a way to get that web site to the actual server that hosts his site so that the public can see it. There are many programs he can use to do this, but if he has Windows 98, then he more than likely already has an easy tool to use called Windows Web Publishing Wizard.

To see if you have it go here: Start > Programs > Microsoft Web Publishing > Web Publishing Wizard. If you do not have this, there is a free FTP program called WS_FTP and you can download it at download.com. Once John Doe has his a folder on his local drive full of everything he wants to upload to the server, he can use one of the FTP programs to upload it.
