FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to see any other folder in your web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
