FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with several clicks. This is done using a user-friendly GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three things are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve opted for during the signup process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account any longer, you can simply remove it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web designer or if an IT person departs the company and you do not want them to access the web files anymore.
