FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of sending files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Each of the web hosting plans that we’re offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any site in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to update them effortlessly. If you provide the login info to some other person to carry out a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you have selected at signup, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a certain account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual quits the firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help library that includes educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any previous experience.
