Learn about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method of exchanging website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll have to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark 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 connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can complete their task without being able to access any other content in your web hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create numerous websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
