FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for sending web content to a hosting account. With an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our Linux web hosting. This service isn’t limited, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans are extremely powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting lots of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can check our elaborate instructional videos, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.
