FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for sending web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to see any other directory in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
