What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP application that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Any of the website hosting
plans that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to administer numerous sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without effort. If you provide the login details to some other person to perform a particular task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts that can access the same folder – if you want different persons to be able to connect to the very same website content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers
don’t have a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to modify your websites without any effort. In case you wish to stop the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can delete the account entirely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP client apps.
