FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select 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 of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
