FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to upload website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three things are required in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux website hosting services that we’re offering, since we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous websites at the same time or grant other individuals access to separate folders. As soon as a particular task has been completed and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting 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 connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a given account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease if you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot different video tutorials, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you get and which hosting Control Panel you select during the registration process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you will acquire FTP access to the machine without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for one single directory – if you want several individuals to access the website content in it with their very own set of login details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-use GUI.
