Discover FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method of sending website files to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you would not like to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have detailed help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any complication.
