FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means for uploading website files to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud website hosting that we offer, as we have chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites at once or give other persons access to multiple folders. Once a specific job has been completed and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve selected on the order page, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account any longer, you can simply remove it and block persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT person leaves your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An elaborate Help database that comprises educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any previous experience.
