FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for uploading web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
