FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means for sending files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any given time. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any impediment.

All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a particular account anymore, you can just delete it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual leaves the firm and you do not want them to access the website files any longer.
