FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to upload and download web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to view any other content in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
