FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to upload and download files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP 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 directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without being able to view any other content in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
