FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of uploading web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. You need three things in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux shared website hosting packages that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can run multiple sites at once or provide other persons with access to separate folders. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting packages, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
