FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of uploading website files to a web hosting account. With FTP software that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. This is done using a user-friendly GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Any of the cloud web hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software application installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to manage numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to update them without any efforts. If you give the login info to another person for a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
