FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of transferring web content to a web hosting account. With FTP software that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are needed 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.

In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one mouse click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what directories they can connect to. Useful functions such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP programs are also just one mouse click away.
