FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous way to transmit website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
