FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to see any other folder in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
