File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular method for transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared hosting plans
that we’re offering, as we have chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run multiple sites at once or provide other people with access to separate folders. As soon as a particular job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting plans, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts with access to the same folder – if you want several people to be able to connect to the exact same content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated plans
do not involve a restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your website files and to modify your websites without effort. In case you wish to block the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP client applications. In addition, we’ve compiled detailed step-by-step articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
