FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for transferring files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux cloud website hosting packages that we offer, as we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous websites simultaneously or grant other persons access to separate folders. Once a particular job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even separate accounts that can access one and the same folder – if you want several individuals to be able to access the same web content with totally different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages don’t have any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your files and to modify your sites without any effort. If you wish to block the access to your content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a couple of clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP client applications. Furthermore, we’ve compiled comprehensive step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.
