FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for sending content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. You need three things in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux shared hosting that we’re offering, because we have chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can maintain numerous sites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to different folders. As soon as a particular job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even different accounts that can access the same folder – if you wish different persons to be able to connect to the very same content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t include any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to modify your sites without a hitch. If you’d like to restrict the access to your website content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP client programs.
