FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of sending web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without effort if you no longer require it – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve made a number of tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a website hosting package before.
