FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to transmit website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without accessing any other folder in the website hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
