FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for exchanging files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will 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. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
