FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of uploading web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an intuitive interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are obligatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering, as we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites simultaneously or provide other people with access to different folders. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
