FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for uploading content to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. You need three things to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud web hosting services that we offer, because we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can run multiple Internet sites simultaneously or grant other people access to multiple folders. Once a given job has been completed and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.
