FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to send web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our website hosting. This feature isn’t limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP client programs are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts with access to one and the same directory – in case you wish different persons to be able to access the same content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers do not have any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to modify your Internet sites without efforts. In case you’d like to block the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP client applications. Furthermore, we have prepared detailed help articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.
