FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of sending files to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux cloud web hosting services that we offer, because we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous sites at once or grant other people access to separate folders. Once a specific job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have selected during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account any longer, you can just delete it and stop persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT individual departs the company and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer.
