FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of uploading web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. You need three prerequisites to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
