File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means of transmitting web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are required in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux shared hosting that we offer, since we have decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can have multiple Internet sites simultaneously or give other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a given job has been completed and you don’t want that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can change the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just delete that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only a click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
