File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means for uploading website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s 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 few clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with any of our shared hosting. This service is not limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can access. Useful functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP applications are also just one click away.
