FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of uploading website files to a hosting account. With an FTP application that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to set up 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 Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any problem.

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 server plan that you’ve picked upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual quits the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. An in-depth Help section that contains how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we’re offering includes a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want different people to be able to connect to the exact same directory using their own login credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not come across any impediment, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
