FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to upload and download web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and check 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 have 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 used by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
