FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means of transmitting website files to a hosting account. With FTP software that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. You need three prerequisites to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each of the shared website hosting plans that we are offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to manage numerous websites all at once and to keep them up to date with ease. In case you provide the login credentials to some other person for a specific task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our user-friendly 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 can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a specific account or to modify its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without efforts if you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to connect to your web files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve shot different how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a website hosting service previously.
