FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for sending content to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular moment. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any problems.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT individual leaves the firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. A detailed Help database that contains instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any previous experience.
