FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for transferring website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks. This is done using 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 that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory 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 Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with any of our shared hosting. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks done. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for popular FTP client programs are also only one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even separate accounts that can access the same folder – in case you wish different people to be able to connect to the very same website content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers do not have any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your files and to modify your Internet sites with no effort. If you’d like to restrict the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account completely with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP clients. Also, we have compiled elaborate help articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you get and which hosting Control Panel you choose during the VPS order procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will gain FTP access to the server without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the software bundle that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even multiple accounts for a single directory – if you want different people to be able to access the web content in it with their very own personal log-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of mouse clicks through an easy-to-navigate interface.
