FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to upload and download files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have 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 lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other content in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous websites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
