FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to upload website content to a hosting account. With FTP software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
