FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for sending web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are required to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can connect to. Handy options such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software applications are also just one mouse click away.
