FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for uploading files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one 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 a comprehensive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you come across any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to edit its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with ease in case you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve made a number of tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a hosting package previously.
