FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send website files between a home PC and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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 of them can be restricted to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can carry out their task without being able to access any other directory in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous websites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
