FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for transferring content to a hosting account. Using an FTP app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our Linux hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so using our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can access. Useful functions such as editing the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP clients are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled different tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a website hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick on the order form – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll obtain FTP access to the machine without installing any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software bundle that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even different accounts for one single folder – in case you want different persons to access the content inside it with their very own login details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks through an easy-to-use GUI.
