FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of transferring website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Any of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application installed on your PC, you will be able to manage multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them up to date without a hitch. If you provide the login info to some other individual to do a certain task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you have opted for upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person leaves your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help database that includes educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any prior experience.
