Learn about FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of uploading website files to a hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done using an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to give other people access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at once and to update them without effort. In case you give the login details to another person to do a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
