What is FTP?
In some cases, you need to upload/download data from your personal computer to VPS or vice versa, but if the data file is quite large or large, the use of FTP will help you solve this problem. In addition, if you want to share the right to manage a website or a folder on the VPS with another person, you do not want to give all VPS information to them because it is related to other data. You can use FTP to authorize directory access and provide an FTP account for this user, then you can rest assured that that person can use it without fear of affecting other data on the VPS.
