FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging web files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will 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. FTP is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other content in your hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
