FTP denotes File Transfer Protocol – a rather popular way to exchange website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program like 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 displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you have 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 create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can carry out their job without being able to access any other folder in the hosting account. Plus, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to build multiple sites with web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their respective folders on the server.
