FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to upload and download files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
