FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transferring files between a home computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple websites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
