FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
