FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.

Any of the web hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to give other persons access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design software program pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to administer multiple sites at once and to keep them updated effortlessly. If you give the login credentials to some other person to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
