File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means of sending files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client application that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
