File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous means of transmitting website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must grant someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the web hosting plans offered by our company, since we have decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple Internet sites at the same time or provide other people with access to multiple directories. As soon as a specific task has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
