File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means of transmitting web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks. This is done using a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must give someone access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are necessary to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. If you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any difficulty.
