FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for sending website files to a hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each of the shared website hosting plans offered by our company will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design software program installed on your computer, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites all at once and to keep them updated without efforts. In case you give the login info to some other person for a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting multiple sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account before, you can check our elaborate tutorial video clips, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

If you open a VPS plans with our company and choose any of the three hosting Control Panels that we are offering – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is part of the default software package that comes with all servers ordered with a Control Panel. This will enable you to create as many FTP accounts as you would like and to indicate which folder each one of them can access. If you wish, you can even create different FTP accounts for one and the same domain name and give different people their very own log-in credentials to access the content. Any of the 3 Control Panels will provide you with the chance to create, to edit or to remove an FTP account in several simple steps and with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, so even in case you do not have any prior experience, you’ll be able to administer an FTP account without effort.
