What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular method for transmitting web files between a home computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can establish a connection to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by a lot 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 web designer, for example, can do their job without being able to view any other directory in your hosting account. Also, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build numerous Internet sites using web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
