FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous way to transmit web files to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux cloud hosting that we offer, since we have chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at the same time or give other individuals access to multiple directories. Once a certain task has been done and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages, will allow you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you want several individuals to be able to connect to the very same web content with completely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don’t include a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to modify your websites without any effort. In case you’d like to restrict the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for several FTP client apps. Furthermore, we’ve prepared in-depth help articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual machine without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software stack that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even different accounts for one single directory – in case you want different individuals to be able to connect to the content in it using their very own personal log-in credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
