FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to upload content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software program that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Each of the cloud hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design software program pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to manage multiple Internet sites at once and to update them without any effort. In case you provide the login information to some other individual to do a specific task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
