FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular way to transfer files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up different 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 example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
