FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for transmitting files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is 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 need with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud hosting that we’re offering, because we’ve decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have multiple sites simultaneously or provide other people with access to separate directories. As soon as a given task has been completed and you don’t want that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting packages, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you have selected during the registration process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT specialist exits your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. A detailed Help repository that contains tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess prior experience.
