FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need 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 set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to view any other content in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
