FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method of transferring website content to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared website hosting packages offered by us, because we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can run numerous Internet sites at the same time or provide other individuals with access to different directories. Once a particular job has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage different 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
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have compiled a number of instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a hosting package previously.
