FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to upload and download website files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other folder in the website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
