FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging web files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
