FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve opted for during the subscription process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a designer or if an IT expert quits the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help section that comprises how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have past experience.

If you wish, you can even create several accounts for the very same domain and give a number of users their own log-in credentials to connect to the web content. Any of the three hosting Control Panels will give you the opportunity to set up, to edit or to delete an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with less than a few clicks of the mouse, so even if you do not have any prior experience, you’ll be able to administer an FTP account without efforts.
