File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular means for transferring website files to a hosting account. With an FTP app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish 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 easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have detailed help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you experience any problem.
