FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of sending website content to a web hosting account. Using FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Each of the website hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites at the same time and to keep them updated without any effort. In case you give the login credentials to another person to carry out a specific task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you no longer require it – for example, if you have hired a web designer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve selected different instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting offered by us includes a limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several persons to be able to set up a connection to one and the same folder with their very own log-in details, for instance, it will take several clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not experience any difficulty, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
