FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method for sending website files to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will 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 things to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux cloud packages that we offer, since we’ve decided not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple Internet sites at the same time or provide other persons with access to different folders. Once a given job has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even different accounts with access to one and the same directory – if you wish different users to be able to access the very same content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages don’t include a restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to manage your web files and to update your websites without effort. If you’d like to stop the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP software applications. Also, we’ve prepared exhaustive step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.
