FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer 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 preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in the hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
