File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular method of sending content to a hosting account. With an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the cloud services that we offer, as we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can have multiple websites simultaneously or grant other persons access to separate directories. Once a certain job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
