FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without accessing any other folder in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
