FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send web files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without accessing any other folder in your web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
