FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to transmit website files to a web hosting account. With FTP software that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular moment. In case you would not like to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an extensive Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected during the order process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can simply delete it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT specialist exits your company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An extensive Help section that comprises video tutorials will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the server order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software stack which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even multiple accounts for one single folder – if you want different persons to access the content in it using their very own set of login credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few mouse clicks via an easy-to-work-with GUI.
