FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to transmit files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you would not like to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a detailed Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort if you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a hosting plan before.
