FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to send content to a web hosting account. With an FTP application that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have comprehensive help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you have any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a certain account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a web hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

If you open a Linux virtual private servers with us and select any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is an essential part of the default software suite that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will enable you to create as many FTP accounts as you would like and to specify which folder each of them can access. If you want, you can even create several accounts for the exact same domain and give different individuals their own personal login details to connect to the content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will provide you with the ability to set up, to edit or to remove an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with less than a few mouse clicks, so even if you’ve got no previous experience, you will be able to administer an FTP account effortlessly.
