FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method of sending files to a hosting account. Using an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

Any of the cloud hosting packages offered by us will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to run multiple Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them updated with ease. If you give the login details to some other person for a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
