FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method of uploading files to a web hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with any of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This service is not restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can connect to. Handy options such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP client programs are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with ease if you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve compiled different video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will have the possibility to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the VPS order process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your necessities, you can set up a different FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you wish to allow a number of people to be able to connect to that folder using their own sign-in credentials. Even if you have never used a hosting account before or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the machine, as everything’s done through an easy-to-work-with interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
