FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for uploading web content to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our cloud hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-connected tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP software applications are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without effort if you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have made different instructional videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a hosting plan before.
