FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for transmitting files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
