FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for uploading website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you run into any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts that can access the exact same directory – if you want different persons to be able to connect to the very same website content with totally different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not have any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your Internet sites with ease. In case you would like to block the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account completely with no more than a couple of clicks via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP clients. Furthermore, we have prepared in-depth step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.
