FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to transfer content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be rather easy with any of our cloud plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP software apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot different educational video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.
