What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for uploading web content to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to provide a third party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Our hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any problem.
