Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of transmitting website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux hosting
that we offer, because we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can manage numerous websites at the same time or provide other persons with access to separate folders. As soon as a specific task has been done and you don’t want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
