FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transmitting files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
