FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this using an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not restricted this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you do not require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we have shot different instructional videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will have the possibility to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS server plans, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve picked at signup – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your necessities, you can create a different FTP account for every Internet site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to allow different users to be able to connect to that folder using their own login credentials. Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, since everything is done through an intuitive GUI and takes just a few mouse clicks.
