  • 2. What is FTP?• FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol• It is a mechanism for transfering files – across networks or over the internet, like http is for hypertext. It is a protocol that defines the content.• FTP allows you to transfer files on your PC to a remote online server where other users can access them
  • 3. FTP Clients• The easiest and most common way to use FTP is via a graphical FTP Client• These allow you to connect to a remote server, then "drag and drop" files in either direction

  • 6. Test your upload/download speed• Transferring large files, especially uploading, can take a long time on some internet connections• Your DSL connection may be very fast, but your upload speed is (normally) only a fraction of this• There are sites that let you test your internet speed (upload and download) to help reveal problems• Speedtest is one, DSL Reports is another
  • 7. Why is uploading so slow?• If your speed test results report a much slower speed than advertised by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), this could be due to a virus infection• Download a good anti-virus tool (such as AVG, Avast! or MalwareBytes) and run a full scan of your system• If no virus is found, contact your ISP and report the slow upload speed to them – it may be a line or hardware problem
  • 8. Improving Bandwidth QualityThere are other things you should do regularly toimprove bandwidth quality (both up and down):• Clear your browser cache/cookies• Reset your router/modem regularly• Ensure no one else in the house/network is eating up all the bandwidth with file-sharing applications, etc
  • 9. Use your FTP Client with Tradebit• Tradebit merchants wanting to sell files smaller than 350mb can use the Upload Wizard web tool• For files larger than 350mb, use an FTP client to connect to ftp.tradebit.com using your Tradebit login
