FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular way to transmit website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
