Question : How would FTP work for me?--Kaye Bowman
Answer : Lets assume that you have created a web site for yourself, and you have seventy-five web pages that you want to display to people. Instead of copying all of the files to disks and manually placing the files on the Web Server, you could open an FTP client, find the Web Server, navigate to the directory where you need to place the files, and then upload the files.
Thus, FTP is simply used:
* to download a file from a server using the Internet, or
* to upload a file to a server (e.g. uploading a web page file to a Server).
