FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for sending web content to a hosting account. Using FTP client software that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. You need three prerequisites to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a specific account or to modify its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you no longer need it – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of tutorial videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.
