What is FTP?

FTP is an acronym that stands for File Transfer Protocol. An FTP client is a program that allows you to easily move files from one computer to another.

In the case of creating a web site, this means that if you create the pages for your site on your computer, either using a text editor or some other web page editor, then you will need to move it to the server where your site will be hosted. FTP is the main way to do this.
