FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud hosting plans offered by our company, because we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have numerous sites at the same time or provide other people with access to different folders. Once a particular task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can update the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only a click to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you have opted for upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and block individuals who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual departs your company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. A detailed Help database that comprises how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans offered by us has any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for each website hosted on your VPS, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different people to be able to connect to one and the same folder using their own personal sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t experience any difficulty, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
