FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous means for sending website content to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web 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 directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you do not want to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any impediments.
