FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas 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 entire folders in either direction is to select 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 restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other directory in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
