FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of transmitting files to a hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the hosting plans that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites simultaneously or give other individuals access to separate folders. As soon as a specific task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about somebody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this service with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a website hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans offered by us has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any website hosted on your VPS, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several persons to be able to make a connection to the exact same directory using their own set of log-in credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t experience any impediment, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
