FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of exchanging files between a home computer and a server. With an FTP software program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can do their task without being able to view any other directory in your web hosting account. In addition, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites using web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
