FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for sending web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software program that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with each of our website hosting plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as changing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP clients are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts in case you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you’ve never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans that we are offering includes a limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any Internet site hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of users to be able to make a connection to the same directory with their own login details, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any impediments, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
