FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for transmitting files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Any of the shared website hosting plans offered by us will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software app installed on your home PC, you will be able to administer multiple sites at once and to update them without any effort. If you provide the login information to another person for a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
