FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transmit files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other directory in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
