FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transmit web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have 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 used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other content in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
