FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to transfer website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect 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 need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
