FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of uploading content to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud plans that we offer, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can run numerous sites all at once or provide other people with access to different folders. As soon as a specific job has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can change the password for the FTP account or you can just delete that account with several clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this feature with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have shot a number of instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a web hosting plan before.
