Learn more about what FTP actually is, what it can do and what is the advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular way to transfer website files to a hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned 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’d like to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are obligatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux cloud packages that we’re offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can manage numerous sites all at once or give other persons access to different folders. As soon as a specific task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
