What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of sending files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the website hosting plans that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage multiple sites simultaneously or provide other individuals with access to separate directories. Once a given job has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
