FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for uploading website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an intuitive graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each of the shared website hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your website hosting account. If you have a web design software application pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date effortlessly. In case you provide the login information to some other individual to do a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have selected during the signup process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a given account any longer, you can simply remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT specialist exits your firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An in-depth Help section that comprises video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.
