FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of transmitting content to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide a third party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the cloud plans that we offer, as we’ve decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites all at once or grant other people access to different directories. As soon as a particular task has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve opted for during the subscription process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a web developer or if an IT individual departs your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An elaborate Help repository that contains tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll be provided with the option to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server plans, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your needs, you can set up a different FTP account for every website or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you wish to allow a number of individuals to connect to that folder using their own set of login credentials. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your server, since everything is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
