FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of transmitting website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection 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 will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
