FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to send content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client application that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud website hosting plans that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can manage multiple sites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to separate directories. Once a specific job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your website files anymore, you can update the password for the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and prevent individuals who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person quits your company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. An in-depth Help repository that includes educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you select during the registration procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll gain FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software suite that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want a number of people to be able to access the website content in it with their very own set of login details. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks through a user-friendly interface.
