FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for transmitting website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP application that is 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 couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you will be able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Each of the cloud website hosting plans offered by us will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design software app pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to manage multiple Internet sites at once and to update them without any efforts. If you provide the login credentials to another person for a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this functionality with any of our plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a particular account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve compiled a number of how-to videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease in case you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans that we offer includes a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of individuals to make an FTP connection to the exact same folder using their very own set of login details, for example, it will take a couple of mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t come across any complication, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
