FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown 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 create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
