FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for uploading website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our hosting. This service is not restricted, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia 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-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Handy options such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP apps are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you’ve opted for on the order page, 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 will be able to set up as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT professional retires from your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help library that contains educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any prior experience.
