FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means of sending web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. If you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any problems.
