FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send content to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. You need three prerequisites in order 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 Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the website hosting plans offered by us, since we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at once or provide other persons with access to multiple folders. As soon as a given job has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
