FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending files between a home computer and a web server. Using 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 it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
