FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for transferring website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have exhaustive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have chosen upon signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT individual departs the company and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. An extensive Help repository that contains tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.
