Discover FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - what they are and when you will require them.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular method for transferring web files to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several clicks. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are required in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
