FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for uploading website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a user-friendly GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. You need three prerequisites to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the web hosting offered by our company, as we’ve chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can run multiple Internet sites simultaneously or provide other individuals with access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
