FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to upload content to a hosting account. With an FTP application that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any complications.
