File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous method of uploading content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Each of the cloud hosting plans offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design app installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them up to date with no effort. In case you provide the login info to some other person to carry out a particular task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a particular account or to modify its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you no longer require it – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have shot a number of instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a web hosting package previously.
