FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method of transferring web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes 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 many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to access any other content in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple websites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
