FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for uploading files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering, as we have decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous websites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. Once a certain task has been accomplished and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
