FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to send content to a web hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud plans offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can manage numerous sites at the same time or provide other individuals with access to multiple folders. As soon as a given task has been fulfilled and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans are exceptionally powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to change it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check out our detailed how-to video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.
