FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for sending website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the shared web hosting plans that we offer, because we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple sites at once or give other persons access to multiple directories. Once a specific task has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
