FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means for sending web files to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Any of the shared web hosting plans that we are offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other persons access to any site in your hosting account. If you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to manage multiple websites simultaneously and to update them effortlessly. If you give the login credentials to another individual to carry out a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve chosen at signup, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT person departs your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An extensive Help section that contains instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have no past experience.
