FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you 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 preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their job without being able to view any other folder in your website hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
