FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular way to send web content to a hosting account. With an FTP client that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three things are compulsory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account without efforts if you do not require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a designer who is done with the website and you do not want them to connect to your files any longer. For your convenience, we have shot a number of educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you have never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by our company will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you buy and which Control Panel you choose on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll acquire FTP access to the machine without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software stack which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even different accounts for one single directory – in case you want different users to connect to the content in it using their very own personal sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks through a simple-to-navigate web interface.
