FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method for transferring web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with several clicks. This is done using a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
