FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means for transmitting web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three things in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you don’t want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have elaborate help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain account or to edit its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you no longer require it – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve shot different instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a website hosting service previously.
