top six ftp clients for wordpress

Frequently asked questions

FTP& DM FtpRight allows you to upload files — that is, copy files from your PC to other computers. For example, you would upload files if you need to place your Web pages on a computer system designated by your ISP (Internet Service Provider), or if you want to store a picture of something you want to sell through an online auction site.

File Transfer Protocol uses the client-server model: one computer (the FTP Host) runs a server program “serving up” information to other computers. The other computers run client programs requesting information and receiving replies from the server.

FTP DM turns your PC into an FTP client, allowing it to communicate with virtually all types of FTP sites. When your PC is connected to the Internet (via a modem or local area network), FTP DM can connect to any system that has a valid Internet Address and contains an FTP server program. Once connected to an FTP site, you can download files, upload files, and copy files from one FTP site to another.
