FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transmit website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ 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 want to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. 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 section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an enormous number of websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account before, you can check our in-depth instructional video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll have the opportunity to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, no matter which hosting Control Panel you have picked during the registration procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for every website or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to permit different persons to be able to access that folder using their very own login details. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, as everything is done via a user-friendly web-based interface and takes only a few clicks.
