FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of transferring website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as private details. You need three prerequisites to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with any of our website hosting. This feature is not limited, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Handy options such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software programs are also just a click away.
