FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 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 designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
