FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for uploading website files to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages offered by us will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to maintain multiple sites simultaneously and to keep them updated without effort. If you provide the login information to some other individual to do a certain task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts with access to the exact same folder – if you would like several persons to be able to access the exact same content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated plans don’t involve any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to update your websites without any effort. If you’d like to block the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for several FTP client applications. Also, we have in-depth step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you purchase and which Control Panel you choose during the signup process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you own or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want different persons to access the content inside it using their very own set of login details. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than several clicks of the mouse via a user-friendly web-based interface.
