What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of transferring files to a hosting account. With an FTP application that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux shared website hosting
offered by our company, as we have decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can manage numerous Internet sites at the same time or give other people access to multiple folders. As soon as a certain job has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
