FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to exchange web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other content in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
