FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to access any other folder in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
