What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of transmitting website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done using an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are necessary to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Any of the shared hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them effortlessly. If you provide the login details to another person for a certain task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
