FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
