FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transmit website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this using an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are obligatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared hosting packages that we offer, as we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple Internet sites all at once or grant other people access to separate directories. As soon as a certain job has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting many sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a web hosting account previously, you can check out our exhaustive educational videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we are offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you order and which Control Panel you select during the registration procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll get FTP access to the machine without having to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software stack which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even multiple FTP accounts for a single folder – if you want several persons to be able to connect to the website content inside it using their own set of login credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate web interface.
