FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular way to send content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with each of our cloud hosting plans. This functionality isn’t restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. If you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can access. Handy functions such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP clients are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not put a restriction on this feature with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see 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’ll be able to update the password for a certain account or to edit its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts in case you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve created different instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a website hosting package before.
