FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of sending web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. You need three prerequisites to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our website hosting plans. This functionality is not limited, so with our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks done. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one mouse click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP applications are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you have picked 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 allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT expert quits the firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help database that contains tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you select upon signup – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even multiple FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want different individuals to connect to the website content in it with their very own login details. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks through a simple-to-use graphical interface.
