FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method of transmitting website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP application that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with several clicks. This is done using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three things are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP software applications are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you have chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual leaves your company and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help section that includes how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will be provided with the possibility to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server configurations, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve chosen during the registration process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your demands, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you want to allow several persons to be able to connect to that folder using their own personal sign-in details. 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, removing or editing any FTP account on the VPS, as everything’s done through an intuitive web-based interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
