FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need 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 used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
