FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for sending files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if 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 see all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve opted for upon signup, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you need via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account anymore, you can just delete it and block people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT person quits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help database that includes how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers offered by our company has any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each site hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want several users to be able to establish an FTP connection to the same folder using their own login credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t encounter any impediment, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
