FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for transmitting website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has done their job and you don’t want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove 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 various options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have in-depth help articles, which can help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check our elaborate educational video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.
