What Is The Best Way To Upload My Large File?

While you can perform a large file upload using a HTTP file transfer, FTP is a much more efficient method of uploading a large file. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol and was the predecessor to HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol). Designed with file transfer in mind, your file transfer speed may be slightly faster since HTTP adds file information headers that contain meta data (information about the file), which increase the size of the file.

In order to be able to transfer files using FTP, you must have an FTP client. The FTP client helps you manage your files by listing the files' information (size and date), similar to a file explorer window. You can use an FTP client application, or use a web based FTP client. CheapFTP.com has an excellent free web based FTP client that allows you to transfer your files directly from the web site, without the need for any other FTP software.
