FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to send web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are necessary to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our cloud website hosting plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our time and effort saving Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one single click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can connect to. Useful functions such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP client applications are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to update its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve made a number of video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a website hosting service before.
