In this entry I will talk about FTP or file transfer protocol particularly WiseFtp as one of the tools I have been using for uploading and downloading files to my webserver. You can read more about File Transfer protocol at wikipedia website. There are plenty of ftp applications out there that I can choose from, but I choose Wiseftp among all the others.
I have no particular reasons why I choose wiseftp except that my web host recommended it, and supplied a direct download link from their Control Panel. Now, that I am used to wiseftp, I stayed with it without exploring the others.
Where to find wiseftp?
You can check out wise-ftp at the wise-ftp website where you can read more information about wiseftp and maybe download the free version of this software. The site has a support forum too. You have questions? They have the answers. What are the forums for right?
I use wiseftp to upload files to the webhost server. I also use it to download files from the web host to my local computer. Basically, wiseftp is very useful for uploading and downloading files over the Internet. I also use wiseftp, if I needed to chmod or change permission to directories.
