Discover more about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous way to send content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
