FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transferring content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared website hosting that we are offering, as we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or provide other persons with access to different directories. Once a certain task has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just a click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are pretty powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an extensive number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can check out our in-depth tutorial video clips, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.
