FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to upload and download files between a home PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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 plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites with web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
