What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
