FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of sending content to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several 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 that you’ll be able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting lots of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth how-to video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.
