FTP is the short term for File Transfer Protocol which is a standard network protocol being used to copy or transfer data, download or upload files from a computer to a server or to a web host server and vice-versa via the Internet.

For security reasons, it is recommended to change your FTP password once in a while no matter how reputable your web hosting provider is.
