FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of sending website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Any of the shared website hosting packages offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to give other people access to any website in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design application installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites at the same time and to keep them up to date without any efforts. In case you give the login credentials to another person to do a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to connect to your web files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve selected a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a hosting service previously.
