FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of sending web content to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging & 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 online storage space, so if you have to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Each of the web hosting packages offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will 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 program pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to manage numerous sites simultaneously and to keep them updated without effort. In case you provide the login credentials to some other individual to carry out a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
