What does FTP stand for?

FTP stands for “File Transfer Protocol”, and is one of the original protocols for transferring data on the internet. Today, FTP is often used as a catchall term for modern file transfer software that can be more accurately called an SFTP server. These tools commonly include features such as HTTPS web transfer, intelligent file routing, file transfer automation, file storage, and transfer encryption options that provide a much greater degree of security than the original FTP servers, but it is common to still hear them referred to as “FTP servers”.
