File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular method of sending content to a hosting account. With an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
