Research different types of ftp programs
Before we start on researching what ftp programs are I wanted to discuss a little about what FTP is. FTP means File Transfer Protocol, which is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host or to another host over the network. FTP usually encyrpts and secures information, Wikipedia. But are there really different types of ftp programs? The answer to that question is yes there are numerous of Ftp programs. One popular one that i have heard about is filezilla. Filezilla is very popular because it can be used on windows, macs, or in linux enviroments. Filezilla is a software that is downloaded or purchased and installed on your computer. You then can use this software to upload your website or information to the internet. In the blog Using FTP, it explains several other softwares that you can use but i mainly wanted to focus on the main one that i have heard about.
Another type of FTP is SFTP, which is secured file transfer protocol. Knowledgebase talks alot about SFTP which means to transfer your information on a secured internet. Alot of companies use SFTP because it helps keep peoples information safe and secured. Companies that may use this would be companies that require you to log on or even store important information in. Amazon, Banks, Online stores are some of the websites that use the SFTP, only because they have important information that the users would like to keep protected like, credit card information, or social security numbers. Even though there are several ftps they all seem to work somewhat the same.
