Learn more about what FTP is, what it can do and what is the main advantage of acquiring multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of uploading web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting packages that we offer will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to maintain multiple websites all at once and to keep them up to date without any effort. In case you give the login information to another individual to do a certain task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
