FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to exchange website files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as 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’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
