FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect 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 need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other directory in your web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
