FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of sending web files to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular moment. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any complications.
