FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to upload website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are required in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. If you would not like to use a particular FTP account anymore or in case a designer has completed their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have detailed help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any difficulty.
