FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method of transferring web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
