Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the main advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of uploading web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. 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 different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have detailed help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have any complications.
