Discover more about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can set up a connection to the server and view 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 select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for instance, can carry out their job without being able to view any other content in your hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites with web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
