FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

In case you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can connect to.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we have not limited this functionality with any of our plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve prepared different how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.
