Notepad ++ connect directly to FTP server

If you are a web developer or want to become one, Notepad ++ is a must have tool for your business. Apart from editing files, the application has a very fast way of modifying the code directly on your server using an FTP client.

Below we will show you how to set up an FTP connection with Notepad ++ and gain remote access to your server.

Getting to know Notepad ++

Notepad ++ is an open source word processing software for Windows users. It is the top choice for many developers due to its countless features.

However, the use of the application can be expanded by adding various add-ons available to improve software functionality. One of them is NppFTP. The tool lets you use Notepad ++ to connect to your server via an FTP connection, so you can edit your files instantly to make changes to your site.

Create FTP connection with Notepad ++
