FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to upload content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are required in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an extensive Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected on the order page, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual departs your company and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An exhaustive Help repository that includes how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have prior experience.
