Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for uploading files to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will 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 info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
