FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of transmitting web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with any of our shared website hosting. This functionality is not limited, so with our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Useful options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP software apps are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an immense number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can check our exhaustive educational videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.
