FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for transferring files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks. This is done using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Any of the website hosting plans offered by our company will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to administer multiple websites at once and to update them without effort. In case you provide the login credentials to some other person to carry out a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a given account or to modify its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a web hosting service previously.
