FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method of sending web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the shared hosting plans offered by our company, since we’ve decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple sites at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. Once a certain job 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 associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a specific account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a designer or if an IT professional exits the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. A comprehensive Help library that contains instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any past experience.
