FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for sending web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to provide a third party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux hosting packages that we are offering, because we have decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple websites at once or give other individuals access to separate folders. Once a given job has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with several clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
