FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to transfer web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. You need three things in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP programs are also just a click away.
