Learn about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - what they are and when you will require them.
FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your PC will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you’ll 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. File Transfer Protocol is preferred by many users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to access just one folder on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in the hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also permit you to build numerous Internet sites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
