FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous way to upload content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, including private details. Three things are compulsory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have elaborate help articles, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any obstacles.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are truly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an enormous number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up an account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
