FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
