FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send content to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
