FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of transmitting files to a hosting account. With an FTP app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this using an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the shared web hosting that we offer, because we have chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites simultaneously or give other persons access to multiple folders. Once a given job has been done and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
