FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are obligatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any given moment. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve opted for on the order form, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual exits the firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help repository that contains educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS hosting plans offered by us has a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any Internet site hosted on the virtual machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to access the very same folder with their own set of login details, for example, it will take several clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any difficulties, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
