FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a computer and a server. With an FTP 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 computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other content in your hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous Internet sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
