FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for uploading web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client program that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done using a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are required to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the cloud plans that we are offering, as we have chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites simultaneously or grant other persons access to different directories. As soon as a particular task has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the specific FTP account or you can just delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are exceptionally powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a vast number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different 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 included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a hosting account before, you can check out our elaborate educational videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
