FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to transmit web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make 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 using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you have any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to change the password for a specific account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you no longer need it – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot a number of video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without any effort if you have never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS web hosting plans that we offer includes a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for any website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several people to set up an FTP connection to the exact same folder with their own set of login details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any predicaments, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
