What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Any of the cloud hosting packages that we are offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run multiple Internet sites at the same time and to keep them updated without efforts. If you give the login credentials to some other individual to carry out a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
