FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of sending files to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared web hosting service offered by us, because we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have multiple Internet sites simultaneously or grant other individuals access to separate directories. As soon as a given job has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
