FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send files to a hosting account. With FTP software that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact 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 grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our shared hosting. This functionality is not limited, so with our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can access. Handy functions such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP programs are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to connect to your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a hosting service previously.
