One of the most convenient ways to update your website content is to upload it through FTP. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a standard network protocol that allows transferring files between two hosts (for example, your computer and a Plesk server). Plesk acts as an FTP server, while users should use some FTP client to access the directories on the server. Plesk provides all main FTP features:
- Authorized access to the server. Learn more in the section Changing FTP Access Credentials.
- Multiple user accounts for collaborative work. Learn more in the section Adding FTP Accounts.
- Anonymous FTP access: The access without authorization that may be used, for example, to share software updates. Learn more in the section Setting Up Anonymous FTP Access.
Note: Information is transferred over FTP unencrypted. We encourage you to use the secure FTPS protocol (also known as FTP-SSL/TLS). FTPS is supported by most modern FTP clients. Refer to your FTP client documentation for instructions on how to enable FTPS.
