FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method of transmitting website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux website hosting packages offered by our company, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can run multiple sites all at once or provide other individuals with access to separate folders. As soon as a specific job has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you wish from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert leaves your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An exhaustive Help library that contains instructional videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not have previous experience.
