Understand more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the main benefit of having multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means of sending files to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. You need three things 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 Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their job and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complication.
