FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of uploading website content to a web hosting account. With FTP software that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via an intuitive GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including personal 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.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we offer, as we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can manage multiple websites all at once or give other persons access to multiple directories. As soon as a given task has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with a few mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
