FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see 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 entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their job without accessing any other directory in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
