Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of sending web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have any complication.
