File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular means of transferring website content to a hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. You need three prerequisites to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux shared website hosting service that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple websites at the same time or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular task has been done and you would not like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts that can access one and the same directory – if you would like several persons to be able to access the very same web content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don’t have a restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to modify your websites without effort. In case you’d like to stop the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP client applications.
