FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for sending files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can connect to the server and see its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the 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. FTP is used by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can do their job without accessing any other directory in the website hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
