FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown 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. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other directory in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
