Understand more about what FTP is, what it does and what is the advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for uploading files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
