FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for transferring content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks. This is done via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design software program pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites all at once and to keep them updated without effort. In case you provide the login credentials to some other individual to carry out a given task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a couple of clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
