What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of sending web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have a detailed Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any difficulties.
