Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the main advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for uploading website files to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Each of the shared hosting packages offered by our company will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your computer, you’ll be able to maintain numerous sites at the same time and to keep them updated with no effort. 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 completely with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
