Discover more about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transfer files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can establish 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 will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to see any other content in your web hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
