FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to see any other directory in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
