    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) can be used for a variety of tasks. For instance, webmasters using FTP for pushing updates/files to their websites can provide easy and straightforward changes to their services without the need to physically transfer files onto the host server. FTP should be used when you must update a file or files on a host server for a variety of reasons and you do not have access to the host server physically. However, FTP also has some inherent security risks which is why some webmasters/hosts chose to opt out of pushing updates through FTP in favour of physical file transfer.
