File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular method of transferring web content to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you encounter any impediments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t restricted this service with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with ease if you no longer need it – for example, if you have hired a developer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to access your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have shot a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
