FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method for transmitting files between a home computer and a server. Using an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to see any other directory in the web hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create multiple Internet sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
