FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous way to transmit website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting plans that we offer will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software program pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to manage multiple Internet sites all at once and to update them without effort. If you give the login credentials to some other individual to carry out a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
