FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for sending website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux hosting that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have multiple sites at once or grant other persons access to different folders. As soon as a particular task has been carried out and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have opted for upon signup, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT person retires from your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help repository that comprises how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any previous experience.
