FTP is an acronym for  '''F'''ile '''T'''ransfer '''P'''rotocol, which is a TCP/IP based network protocol just like the [[HTTP]] used to transmit files from one computer to another through the internet. FTP is designed to transfer small multiple files such as images on a web page instead of transferring a single large file. This standard protocol supports pausing, scheduling and restarting of file downloads.
