FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of uploading web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared web hosting
offered by us, because we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or grant other persons access to multiple folders. Once a specific task has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages, will permit you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have opted for on the order page, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a given account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT specialist exits your company and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help section that contains educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess past experience.
