FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in the website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
