FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transmitting files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of 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 web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
