FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to upload and download website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or entire directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP 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 single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build numerous websites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
