FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for sending web files to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux shared hosting that we offer, as we have decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run numerous sites all at once or give other persons access to separate folders. As soon as a specific task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
