FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. You need three prerequisites to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
