File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and a server on a computer network. FTP is built on a client-server model architecture using separate control and data connections between the client and the server. It allows users to upload, download, delete, rename, and move files on a server. FTP is widely used for transferring large files and managing files on web servers. Although it's a traditional protocol, it's still commonly used, but often secured with FTPS (FTP Secure) or replaced with SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) for better security.
