FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of sending website files to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to modify its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to access your web files anymore.
