FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need 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 many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without accessing any other folder in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
