Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the main benefit of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – en extremely popular method of sending website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be displayed in another pane within the main program window. All you need to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by lots of users because you can create different FTP accounts and each one can be restricted to access just one folder on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to see any other content in your hosting account. In addition, the presence of different FTP accounts will also allow you to build multiple websites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific directories on the server.
