FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you 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. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous Internet sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
