FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transmitting content to a web hosting account. With an FTP program 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 files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the web hosting that we’re offering, since we have chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can run multiple sites at once or provide other persons with access to separate directories. As soon as a particular task has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account with ease if you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a designer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your website files anymore. For your convenience, we have shot a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the signup process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you will obtain FTP access to the machine without installing any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software suite which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have registered or even multiple accounts for a single folder – if you want different individuals to be able to connect to the web content inside it using their very own personal sign-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of clicks through an easy-to-work-with web-based interface.
