FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for sending website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the hosting offered by our company, as we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can have multiple websites all at once or grant other people access to different directories. As soon as a particular task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just a click to administer various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
