Learn more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the main benefit of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for transferring content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting
packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you encounter any complication.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a given account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without efforts if you do not require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different educational videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a website hosting service previously.
