FTP

Term: FTP
Def: FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and is a specific procedure (protocol) that governs the transferring/uploading of files from your computer to a web server. Here's a good analogy that helps break it down:
Picture a semi-trucking (FTP) picking up goods (files, folders, photos, themes, etc...) from your warehouse (computer), then driving those goods down the road (internet), and then dropping the goods of at the store (website). This is in the simplest way how FTP works!
