Find out about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send files to a web hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
Any of the shared web hosting
packages that we’re offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any website in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software app installed on your home computer, you will be able to administer multiple sites simultaneously and to update them with no effort. In case you give the login credentials to some other person to carry out a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
are very powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting multiple sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Also, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check our exhaustive video tutorials, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
