FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of transferring files to a web hosting account. With FTP software that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-use GUI 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’ll be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our website hosting. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can access. Useful options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP applications are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a huge number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limitation on 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 servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up an account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a web hosting account before, you can watch our exhaustive tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
