FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for transferring website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera.
