FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have 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 numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other folder in your website hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
