FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to upload and download website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders 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 create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to access any other content in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous websites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
