FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for transferring files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by us will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software app pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to manage numerous websites at once and to keep them up to date without a hitch. In case you provide the login credentials to another person for a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected upon registration, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT individual departs your company and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An elaborate Help repository that includes educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have prior experience.
