File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular way to transfer files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done using an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any impediment.
