FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of transmitting website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want 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 ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by us will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to run multiple sites all at once and to keep them updated with ease. If you give the login info to another individual to carry out a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not put a limit on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have created different instructional videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a website hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering has a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on the server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different users to be able to establish a connection to the same folder using their very own sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t encounter any problems, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
