What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for uploading web files to a hosting account. With an FTP app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. You need three things to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account anymore or if a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have in-depth help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you come across any impediment.
