FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of transmitting web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have elaborate help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with ease in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have made different how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a website hosting plan before.
