FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to send files to a hosting account. With an FTP program that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must give someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you run into any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even multiple accounts that can access the exact same folder – if you want several users to be able to access the very same website content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers do not involve a limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to modify your sites without effort. In case you wish to restrict the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for different FTP applications. Also, we’ve compiled in-depth help articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts seamlessly.
