FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for sending website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you 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. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without accessing any other directory in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
