FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas 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 entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to see any other directory in your web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
