FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular method of transferring web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to provide a third party with access, for instance – a web 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, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our Linux shared web hosting services. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can update the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one mouse click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can connect to. Handy options such as editing the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP client applications are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts with access to the exact same folder – in case you would like different persons to be able to connect to the exact same website content with totally different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting services don’t include any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you will be able to administer your website files and to modify your websites with no effort. If you would like to limit the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP software apps. What’s more, we have compiled elaborate help articles and tutorial videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting offered by us includes a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on your virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of persons to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory using their own set of login details, for example, it will take several clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not encounter any complication, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
