What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular method of sending content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP application that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the cloud hosting offered by our company, because we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple websites all at once or give other individuals access to different directories. As soon as a particular job has been done and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can edit the password for the FTP account or you can just delete the account with several clicks and stop worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting plans, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one click to administer different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
