File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means of transferring website files to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Any of the cloud hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to grant other people access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous sites all at once and to keep them up to date without effort. In case you give the login credentials to another person to carry out a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled different instructional videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort in case you’ve never used a hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we offer includes any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on your virtual machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different persons to connect to one and the same folder using their very own login credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have any complication, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
