FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of exchanging files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
