What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for transmitting website files to a hosting account. With an FTP program that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts that can access one and the same directory – in case you wish several individuals to be able to connect to the same website content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers
don’t have any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to modify your sites without a hitch. If you wish to limit the access to your website content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account completely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP software applications. Also, we have in-depth help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
