FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit files between a home 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, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other folder in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
