FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous means for uploading web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an intuitive interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
