FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for uploading content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux shared hosting packages that we offer, as we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at once or give other people access to separate directories. As soon as a specific job has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are incredibly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting lots of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to limit the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia 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. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive educational video clips, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we are offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick at signup – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll receive FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the software suite that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even several accounts for a single folder – in case you want different individuals to access the website content in it with their own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-work-with GUI.
