FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you’ll 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. FTP is preferred by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to access any other directory in the hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple Internet sites using web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
