FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular way to exchange web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect 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 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 used by plenty 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 web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other directory in the hosting account. Furthermore, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous Internet sites using web design tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.
