FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for sending web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This functionality is not restricted, so using our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one mouse click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and what folders they can connect to. Handy functions such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP client apps are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a given account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without any effort if you do not require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have created different tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts if you have never used a website hosting package previously.
