FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol – a quite popular method for transferring web files between a home PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can set up a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the main program window. All you will need to do to send files or whole folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is used by numerous users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without accessing any other directory in your hosting account. What’s more, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to create multiple websites with web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and to upload them to their corresponding folders on the server.

If you provide the login details to another individual to perform a particular task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a couple of clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your web content from then on.
