Learn about FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for transmitting files to a hosting account. With an FTP application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have any obstacle.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t restricted this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a particular account or to update its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve prepared a number of tutorial videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a website hosting plan before.
