FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transfer files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of clicks. This is done using a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP software applications are also only one click away.

If needed, you will be able to update the password for a particular account or to update its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to access your web files anymore.
