FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular way to send website files to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud plans offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have numerous websites at the same time or give other individuals access to multiple directories. Once a specific job has been done and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to administer different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have created different video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a web hosting plan before.
