FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you will have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can complete their task without being able to see any other folder in the website hosting account. Also, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build multiple Internet sites with web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
