FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to transmit content to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the web hosting that we’re offering, because we have chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites simultaneously or grant other people access to different directories. As soon as a given job has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting packages, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t limited this feature with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts if you no longer need it – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the site and you do not want them to access your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared different how-to videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll be provided with the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server configurations, no matter which Control Panel you have chosen during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a different FTP account for every Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a certain folder – if you wish to allow a number of persons to access that folder using their very own log-in credentials. Even if you have never used a hosting account previously or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, as everything is done through a simple-to-navigate GUI and takes only a few mouse clicks.
