FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of sending content to a web hosting account. Using FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have in-depth help articles, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any predicaments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not restricted this feature with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without effort in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have selected different tutorial video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be provided with the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS server packages, no matter which Control Panel you have picked during the signup process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your necessities, you can have a different FTP account for every website or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you would like to allow different users to be able to access that folder using their own log-in credentials. Even if you have never opened a web hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, as everything is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
