FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous way to transmit content to a web hosting account. With an FTP application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any given moment. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have any obstacle.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve chosen on the order form, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a given account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT expert departs the company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help section that comprises educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any previous experience.
