FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for uploading web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP 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 only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an elaborate Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you experience any complication.
