FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of transferring website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared services that we’re offering, since we have decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can run numerous websites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple directories. As soon as a particular job has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete that account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have shot a number of video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a web hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting that we are offering has any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an account for each website hosted on the VPS server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of persons to be able to make a connection to the very same directory using their own personal sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you will not need to deal with any complication, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
