FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means of uploading web files to a web hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum 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 particular FTP account any longer or if a designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any complication.

For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to change it, if needed.
