FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to transmit website content to a hosting account. With an FTP app that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this using 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 accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our cloud hosting plans. This feature isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your sites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful functions such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP apps are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve picked on the order page, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT specialist exits your company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An in-depth Help database that includes how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have any prior experience.

If you wish, you can even set up several accounts for one and the same domain and give a number of individuals their own set of log-in details to access the web content. Any of the three Control Panels will provide you with the opportunity to set up, to edit or to remove an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with no more than a few mouse clicks, so even in case you do not have any prior experience, you’ll be able to manage an FTP account without any effort.
