FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by lots of users because you can create 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 being able to access any other content in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
