FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you have 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 numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other content in your website hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
