FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transmitting files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites with web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
