FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of transferring web content to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud website hosting offered by us, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can have numerous websites all at once or give other individuals access to different directories. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to access your files anymore, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to administer various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you’ve selected upon registration, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person leaves the company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. A detailed Help database that contains how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t possess prior experience.
