What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of transmitting website files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, whereas the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All it takes to send files or entire folders in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each of them can be restricted to connect to just one single directory on the server, so a web designer, for instance, can complete their job without being able to view any other folder in the website hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites using web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding directories on the server.
