FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular way to send website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their task without accessing any other content in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous Internet sites with web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
