FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means for uploading website files to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
