FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for sending files to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Each of the web hosting packages offered by us will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to manage numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any effort. If you give the login details to another person to carry out a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
