FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of transferring content to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular moment. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You’ll be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any obstacle.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not restricted this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a particular account or to update its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a designer who is done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will be provided with the ability to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all virtual server configurations, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve selected during the signup process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several accounts with access to a specific folder – if you wish to allow several individuals to access that folder with their very own sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, removing or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, since everything is done via an easy-to-use graphical interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
