Learn about FTP accounts and about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to transmit web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any problems.
