FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of uploading content to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. You need three things to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
