FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of transferring website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several clicks. This is done using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
