FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up 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 job without being able to see any other directory in the website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
