FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for transmitting files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas 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 whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their job without accessing any other content in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
