FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of transmitting web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each of the shared website hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other persons access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple websites all at once and to keep them updated without a hitch. In case you give the login information to another individual to perform a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an immense number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.
