FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method for exchanging web files between a home PC 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, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by lots of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to access any other directory in the website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
