FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of uploading website content to a hosting account. With an FTP app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to give someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our Linux hosting packages. This service isn’t limited, so with our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have created and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP software apps are also only one click away.
