FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for transferring website content to a web hosting account. With FTP software that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Each of the cloud website hosting packages that we’re 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 website in your hosting account. In case you have a web design program installed on your home computer, you will be able to run multiple sites at once and to update them effortlessly. In case you provide the login info to another person to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
