FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of transmitting website content to a hosting account. Using FTP client software that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. If you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an elaborate Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts that can access the very same directory – in case you wish several people to be able to access the very same content with completely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages don’t have any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your files and to modify your sites effortlessly. If you wish to limit the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account completely with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP client apps. In addition, we’ve compiled exhaustive help articles and how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.
