FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a designer has done their job and you don’t want them to access your web 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 FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have detailed help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any impediment.
