FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other folder in the website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous sites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
