FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are mandatory in order 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 Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even different accounts that can access the very same directory – in case you want different individuals to be able to connect to the very same content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages don’t include any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to manage your website files and to modify your websites with ease. In case you wish to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP client programs.
