FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of exchanging files between a home computer and a web 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 shown in another pane within the program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can create 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 complete their job without being able to view any other content in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
