FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for uploading and downloading website files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you 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 used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
