FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for transmitting website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
