FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to exchange website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
