File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous method of uploading web content to a web hosting account. Using FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. You need three prerequisites to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the cloud hosting offered by our company, because we have decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple sites at the same time or grant other people access to separate directories. As soon as a particular job has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can change the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
