FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to send website files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the 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. FTP is preferred by a lot of 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 task 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 numerous Internet sites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
