FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means of transferring website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are compulsory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting packages that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple websites all at once and to keep them updated with ease. If you provide the login info to some other person to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account anymore, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT person departs the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer.
