FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of uploading files to a hosting account. With an FTP client that is 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 a couple of clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
