FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for transferring website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several clicks. This is done using an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. You need three things to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any obstacle.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without any effort if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve made a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a website hosting plan before.
