FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of transmitting web content to a web hosting account. Using FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the hosting that we offer, because we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can maintain numerous sites at once or give other people access to separate directories. As soon as a particular task has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
