FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for transferring content to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that is pre-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. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t limited this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a certain account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort if you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For your convenience, we have made a number of how-to video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we are offering has any limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on the machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select when you order – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want several people to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory with their own set of sign-in credentials, for example, it will take several clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any obstacle, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
