File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous method for uploading website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three prerequisites to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are truly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to set a limit on 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 comes with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you have never used a hosting account previously, you can check our elaborate video tutorials, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.
