What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of uploading files to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are compulsory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Any of the cloud website hosting
packages offered by us will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application installed on your PC, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites all at once and to keep them updated with ease. In case you provide the login credentials to some other individual to do a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
