FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transferring website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to view any other directory in the web hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
