What is FTP?
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files from a server to a client using the Client-server model on a computer network.
How do we use it?
Anytime you want to upload a file, fonts or image to your WordPress you’ll use this process to do so. You’ll need one of two pieces of software to achieve this.
What are they?
FileZilla is software you would need to download to your desktop. Here’s the link to do so. This is also a bit more advanced because it reads both your desktop files and the ones on your server. You’ll need to download a text editor to edit your theme files along with this.
How do I find my FTP info?
This is usually sent to you when you sign up for a hosting plan. You’ll need to check the very first email you received from them. If you don’t have it you’ll need to contact your hosting company or create a new FTP account from your cPanel.
