FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of transmitting content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few clicks. This is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting packages
. This service is not restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as changing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software applications are also just a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages
are stunningly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting many sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you can watch our comprehensive video tutorials, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
