File transfer protocol are used for transferring the bulk data. It is the connection oriented protocol means it first establish the connection between client and server then transmission of the data taken place. It is more secure because it only allow the data download and upload after proper authentication of the user.

The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to transfer computer files between a client and server on a computer network. FTP is built on a client-server model architecture and uses separate control and data connections between the client and the server. FTP users may authenticate themselves with a clear-text sign-in protocol, normally in the form of a username and password, but can connect anonymously if the server is configured to allow it.
