FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for uploading website content to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our web hosting plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP client applications are also just one mouse click away.
