FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of sending web content to a web hosting account. With FTP software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with graphical 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’re able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. You need three things to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

Our web hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you need at any particular time. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you don’t want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click.
