FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to upload and download files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and see its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you 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 of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their task without being able to access any other folder in the web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple Internet sites using web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
