Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to transmit files between a home computer 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 displayed in another pane within the program window. All you need to do 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 used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can do their task without being able to access any other directory in your web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create multiple sites with web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
