FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of sending content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks. This is done using a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any website in your hosting account. If you have a web design app pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to manage numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them effortlessly. In case you give the login details to some other person to carry out a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your web content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have selected on the order form, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT specialist quits the company and you do not want them to access the web files anymore. A detailed Help library that contains how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS services that we are offering includes a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for any website hosted on your virtual server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you join – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several users to be able to access one and the same directory with their very own set of sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not have to deal with any impediment, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
