FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means of transferring website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Each of the website hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to give other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites at once and to keep them updated without a hitch. If you provide the login information to another individual to carry out a certain task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve selected upon registration, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a specific account anymore, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT specialist retires from your company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help database that comprises how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess prior experience.
