FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transmit files to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any complication.
