Acronym: File Transfer Protocol

FTP is the protocol over which files are generally transferred over the internet. Although HTTP can handle many of the same transfers, it is designed for the transfer of multiple small files (like images on a web page), rather than larger single files. Designed to handle the transfer of these larger files, FTP supports pausing, scheduling, and restarting of file downloads.
