FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of sending website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the web hosting plans that we’re offering, because we have decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple websites all at once or give other people access to multiple folders. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you don’t want that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting packages, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to administer various 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 Servers

Using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you wish several persons to be able to connect to the exact same content with different login details. Our semi-dedicated plans don’t involve a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to update your Internet sites without a hitch. In case you would like to stop the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP programs. What’s more, we’ve got exhaustive step-by-step articles and educational video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS hosting plans offered by us has any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an account for each site hosted on the server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different users to be able to establish an FTP connection to the very same folder using their very own set of login details, for example, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t have any complication, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
