FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transferring web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using an intuitive GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three things are necessary to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
