FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method of transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any impediments.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up a new account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account previously, you can check out our elaborate instructional video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
