File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means of transmitting web files to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages offered by us will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to run numerous sites all at once and to update them without a hitch. If you provide the login information to another person to do a certain task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with just a few clicks and prevent any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting multiple Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed educational video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS plans that we offer includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several users to be able to access the exact same directory with their own personal sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t come across any complication, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
