FTP

Acronym. File Transfer Protocol.

FTP is a protocol used to navigate remote file systems over the internet, and supports uploading files, downloading files, renaming, and deleting files, and a variety of other file management functions.

It is in relatively common use today, but because of its design and difficulties traversing Firewalls, its use has dwindled since the advent of the internet.

A URL for a FTP server begins with:

ftp://
