FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous way to send website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide a third party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Each of the hosting packages offered by us will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design app pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to manage multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you give the login details to another individual to do a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
