FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for sending web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are needed 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 Cloud Web Hosting

Any of the cloud web hosting plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design app installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to run numerous websites all at once and to keep them updated with ease. If you provide the login information to another individual to perform a specific task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a certain account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who is finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve made a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a website hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans offered by our company includes any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any Internet site hosted on your VPS server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel 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 different users to make an FTP connection to the very same folder with their very own set of log-in details, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t experience any impediment, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
