FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other folder in the hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
