FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for transmitting web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a third party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. You need three prerequisites to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you encounter any complication.
