FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of sending web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are compulsory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

This service is not limited, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only a click from the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have selected during the registration process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you like from 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 need a given account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT expert departs the firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An in-depth Help database that contains educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess prior experience.
