FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any predicaments.

All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account previously, you can check our in-depth how-to video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
