Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of uploading content to a hosting account. With FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol 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 must provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with any of our shared plans. This service isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP software programs are also just a mouse click away.
