Discover FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular way to transfer web files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All it takes to send files or entire directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by plenty of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one single folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other folder in your website hosting account. Plus, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
