FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of uploading website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have exhaustive help tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you experience any complication.
