File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous method of sending files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
