FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular way to transfer web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP application that is 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 want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are required to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any given time. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have comprehensive help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you have chosen during the order process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual leaves your firm and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. An in-depth Help repository that comprises how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll get the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server configurations, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked during the signup process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for each site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you would like to allow a number of people to connect to that folder with their own login details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything’s done via a simple-to-use web-based interface and takes only a few clicks.
