New ixDownload guide on File Transfer protocol (FTP) software demystifies remote server file management for corporate and average users.

Online PR News – 29-April-2011 – – (Bellevue, WA April 26, 2011) Whenever people start talking about the Internet and someone starts dropping acronyms, initials, and arcane technical topics, people's eyes start glazing over. TCP/IP, DHCP, and FTP and a host of other acronyms scare off many people who are not very technically savvy. This should not be the case because very important online functions are at stake behind such initials. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a very important function for any user of the Internet—FTP governs the upload and download of files stored on servers populating the Internet. That's why it is extremely important for Internet users to find the right FTP software package for their particular needs and situations.

"FTP used to be the province of nerds", says Oliver Thompson, Media Principal at ixDownload.com, the Internet's leading source of software reviews and software download guides. "As recently as five years ago, FTP packages fell into two camps—very simple and very complicated. There was no middle ground." As users' needs evolve along with the evolution of files available online, the time has come for previously non-savvy FTP users needing to use more powerful packages because the storage sites they are using to archive or download files have changed. "Business FTP users are the ones that have experienced the greatest change in their needs. Due to legal or security reasons, typical business rank and file employees have seen their needs change over the last few years—files have gotten bigger and security settings more complicated," noted Thompson.

Because of all these changes and in the spirit of simplifying FTP for all users, ixDownload.com has released its FTP software resource guide, located at http://www.ixdownload.com/reviews/ftp-software/. "Our goal is to 'democratize' previously 'complicated' software such as FTP packages. We do this explaining what FTP software does and how a wide range of consumers, from students to music fans to business users to webmasters, can confidently pick out an FTP package that addresses their needs," said Thompson. Every user is different and ixDownload.com's simply-worded yet powerful guides help consumers, regardless of their level of technical expertise, pick out the right package that fits their situation. With the release of this guide, FTP has ceased to be the province of nerds and geeks.
