What is FTP?

File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is a very simple and easy way to transfer files from your computer to a server. I'm actually oversimplifying it, but it's basically the old-school way to upload files to your website. Some developers still use it to modify code on their WordPress files.

All you need is a FTP client (Filezilla seems to be the standard nowadays), a login and a password, and you are ready to upload and download files. 

SFTP is the more secure cousin of FTP, and that's the one we work with on our servers.

If you need SFTP access to your site, please email support@performancefoundry.com and we will organise it for you.
