FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of sending files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed 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 mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by many 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 designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to see any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
