FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
