FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means for sending web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
