Opening remote files with emacs

I use emacs on a pretty much daily basis to edit code, HTML, CSS, Javascript and of course, plain old fashioned text/plain! Over the years I've learned some quick go-to shortcuts for opening and editing files. One of the most useful is the Ange/Tramp mode command line arguments.

To open an SSH connection to a remove server:
emacs /ssh:username@host:
To open an FTP connection to a remove server:
emacs /ftp:username@host:
So all in all you just do:
emacs /protocol:username@host:
