FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring web files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites with web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
