FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for uploading website files to a hosting account. Using FTP client software that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve selected at signup, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a particular account anymore, you can simply delete it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a designer or if an IT person quits the firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files any longer. An in-depth Help database that contains educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.
