FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular way to upload web files to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux website hosting offered by our company, because we’ve decided not to limit this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple websites at once or provide other individuals with access to different directories. As soon as a given task has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only a click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we have compiled different instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a hosting plan before.
