FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for transmitting files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. You need three things to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
