Understand more about what FTP is, what it does and what is the advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of uploading website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Any of the shared website hosting
packages offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design app pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous sites all at once and to update them without effort. In case you provide the login details to some other person to do a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans
are incredibly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting lots of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed educational video clips, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
