FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for sending web files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select 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 of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to access any other folder in your web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
