File Transfer Protocol was first introduced by [[Abhay Bhustan]] from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ([[MIT]]) Project MAC on April 16, 1971 through RFC 114, which provides the standard definition and the basic commands of the protocol enabling devices specifically computers to communicate or transfer files or messages with each other. The main objective of FTP is to promote the indirect use of computers.<ref>[http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc114 RFC 114]</ref> <ref>[http://www.tcpipguide.com/free/t_FTPOverviewHistoryandStandards.htm FTP Overview, History and Standards]</ref>

RFC 114 was updated by several RFCs to improve the specifications of FTP such ad RFC 172, RFC 265. On July 8, 1972, Bhustan introduced a major revision of the FTC specifications through RFC 354. Based on the RFC, FTP aims to allow the efficient and reliable transfer of files among HOSTs as well as the convenient use of remote file storage capabilities. <ref>[http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc354 RFC 354]</ref> Subsequent RFCs were further released providing more improvements on the protocol including RFC 542 in 1973.

In 1974, RFCs 607, 614 and 624 proposed changes in the design of the FTP. These RFCs were followed by RFCs 686 and RFC 691, which provided additional information regarding the printing of files.

The first FTP standard protocol was RFC 765, which was published by [[Jon Postel]] in June 1980. This specification described the transition of using TCP instead of NCP as the fundamental protocol for FTP. <ref>[http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc765 RFC 765]</ref>
