FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of uploading website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any difficulty.

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve opted for on the order form, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and stop people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual leaves your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer.
