FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to send website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP 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 entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to access any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
