Discover FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means for transferring website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the Linux cloud hosting packages
offered by us, as we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can manage multiple sites at once or give other individuals access to separate folders. Once a particular job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via FTP whatever the package that you’ve picked upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account any longer, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is particularly handy if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT expert exits the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An in-depth Help library that includes instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any prior experience.
