FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method of exchanging files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll have 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 of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their job without accessing any other content in the web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
