FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of uploading website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three things are required to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with any of our Linux cloud web hosting. This service is not limited, so using our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just one single click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP software programs are also just a mouse click away.
