FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for uploading web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
