Learn about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for sending website files to a hosting account. With an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at the same time and to keep them updated with ease. In case you provide the login info to some other individual to do a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
