FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for transferring content to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be very easy with any of our Linux cloud packages. This feature is not limited, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP client apps are also only a mouse click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can simply remove it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT expert leaves your company and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help section that includes tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any previous experience.
