FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for transferring files to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. 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 server space, so if you would like to give someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This functionality is not restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just a click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you have set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful functions such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP client programs are also just a click away.
