FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transmit website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including private 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.
