FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for sending web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web 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 usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are truly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a large number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.
