FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need 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. FTP is preferred by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their job without being able to see any other content in the website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
