File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular way to send web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared website hosting packages that we are offering, because we have chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can manage numerous Internet sites at the same time or provide other persons with access to multiple directories. As soon as a certain task has been completed and you would not like that person to be able to access your web files any longer, you can modify the password for the particular FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.
