FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transferring files to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the shared website hosting services that we’re offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can run numerous websites at the same time or give other people access to separate directories. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply delete the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you have picked on the order page, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you wish from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and stop people who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a designer or if an IT expert departs your company and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An in-depth Help section that comprises educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any previous experience.

Any of the 3 hosting Control Panels will provide you with the option to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with less than several clicks, so even if you’ve got no previous experience, you’ll be able to administer an account without a hitch.
