What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for transmitting website content to a hosting account. With an FTP app that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. You need three things in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.
