FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to upload files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application 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 website files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create separate 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 will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared website hosting offered by us, because we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have multiple Internet sites all at once or grant other individuals access to separate directories. Once a specific task has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
