FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of sending files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders 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 limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other folder in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
