What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for transmitting content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have any obstacle.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you do not require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have selected a number of how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease in case you’ve never used a hosting package before.
