FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple websites with web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
