FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of transmitting files to a hosting account. With an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Each of the hosting packages offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software program pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to run multiple sites at the same time and to update them without any effort. If you give the login info to another individual to carry out a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
