FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transmit website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program like 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 main program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without being able to see any other directory in your website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
