FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular method of transmitting website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this using a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have detailed help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any impediments.
