FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view 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 have 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 used by many 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 do their task without accessing any other folder in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
