FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for uploading web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP application that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
