File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular method of sending web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared packages that we’re offering, as we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific job has been carried out and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to administer different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
