Filezilla – FTP File Transfer Tool
Without Filezilla, I would have to login to my CPANEL account, navigate to the folder on my server, and manually upload every file. Some of the funnels and websites I build could have ten or more files (even up to 100), so one-at-a-time uploads are tedious.
I build many of the websites offline, do all my file creation and editing on my laptop, and would need to upload the complete directory structure including all those files. In those cases I would ZIP them, and upload the whole zipfile then extract it where I want it to permanently reside with CPANEL.
But, some hosting accounts have filesize limitations for uploads, so the CPANEL method does not work. Filezilla skirts that requirement because each file is sent separately, even though you select a whole folder to upload.
The biggest advantages of Filezilla: Speed, and Stored Profiles. It is a huge timesaver using profiles built for each site, or even at a project level, so it only takes a couple clicks, and also, Filezilla is so fast.
You are probably saying, “what do I need this for?” You may be right, but if you find yourself having to do this type of work in the future, keep this in mind: it is the defacto standard for FTP client software.
There is also a server version.
