Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular way to upload and download website files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while 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 entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one directory on the server, so a designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other folder in the web hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple sites using web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.
