What is FTP or File Transfer Protocol Software?

So you want to know even more about File Transfer Protocol Software?

There are a lot to choose from.

You will first need to decide what method of building a website you are going to use.  Are you going to just use a text editor and write in a basic text editor?

Are you looking more for a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) html editor?  If you are, I recommend Front Page by Microsoft. 

Many good hosting companies will offer support for Front Page Server Extensions.

Front Page Server Extensions allow the average person to create quite advanced website functionality without in depth knowledge of HTML.

Front Page also has built in FTP capabilities.

A great piece of software that is for the more advanced user is Macromedia's Dreamweaver.  It can be a bit intimidating for beginners, but is super powerful once you become more comfortable with web design.

For Just FTP my favorite software is CuteFTP.  Simple, fairly inexpensive, and really powerful.
