FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for sending web files to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a user-friendly GUI 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 set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to grant someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their job and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any predicament.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are pretty powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting multiple Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a web hosting account previously, you can check our detailed video tutorials, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we are offering includes a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an account for each Internet site hosted on your machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several people to establish an FTP connection to the very same folder with their own sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t come across any complication, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
