FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, 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 have 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. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
