FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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’ll need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other folder in your hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
