FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means for transmitting website files to a hosting account. Using FTP software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three things are required in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Each of the cloud web hosting packages offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to grant other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. If you have a web design software program pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to run numerous websites all at once and to keep them updated without effort. In case you give the login credentials to some other person to perform a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
