FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do 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 set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other directory in the web hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
