FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of transferring web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
