FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for sending files to a hosting account. With an FTP app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any difficulty.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t require it any longer – for example, 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 your convenience, we’ve prepared different educational videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you have never used a website hosting service previously.
