What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for uploading website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
