FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for sending content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and administering numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with each of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This service isn’t restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with only one single mouse click from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can access. Handy functions such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP software apps are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve opted for on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a given account any longer, you can just remove it and stop persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a developer or if an IT person quits the firm and you don’t want them to access the web files any longer. An in-depth Help database that includes how-to videos will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have no previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you order and which Control Panel you select upon registration – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll have FTP access to the machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software suite that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even separate accounts for one single folder – in case you want different people to be able to connect to the web content in it using their own set of sign-in credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
