FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for transferring content to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared web hosting that we are offering, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can manage multiple websites simultaneously or provide other individuals with access to multiple directories. As soon as a given job has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can change the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
