FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transferring content to a hosting account. With an FTP app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with several mouse clicks. 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 File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be really easy with each of our website hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one mouse click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and what folders they can connect to. Useful options such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP software programs are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have chosen during the signup process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT professional departs the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An exhaustive Help library that contains tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have no past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will be provided with the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the VPS order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can set up a different FTP account for every website or several accounts with access to a given folder – if you would like to allow several users to be able to access that folder with their own personal sign-in credentials. Even if you have never had a web hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, since everything is done via an intuitive web interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
