FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transmitting website files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while 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 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 limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to see any other content in the hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites with web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
