FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of transmitting web content to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are obligatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Any of the cloud hosting plans offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple websites at once and to update them without any efforts. In case you provide the login information to some other individual to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we have not set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot a number of tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting services that we are offering has any restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for any Internet site hosted on the VPS server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you order – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to access the same folder with their very own sign-in credentials, for example, it will take several clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have any obstacle, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
