FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of sending content to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
