FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of sending files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few clicks. This is done using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must grant someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any website in your website hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your PC, you will be able to manage multiple sites at the same time and to update them without any effort. In case you provide the login credentials to some other person to do a particular task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are extremely powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a vast number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a hosting account previously, you can watch our in-depth instructional video clips, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.
