FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transferring website files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in your website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
