FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our shared website hosting packages
. This functionality is not restricted, so using our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks completed. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Handy functions such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software programs are also only one click away.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t restricted this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to access your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have shot different educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting
With a virtual private server

Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, as everything’s done via a simple-to-use web interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
