FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transmitting files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use GUI 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 different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are mandatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux cloud web hosting service that we are offering, since we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites at once or grant other people access to multiple folders. Once a certain task has been completed and you do not want that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can update the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even different accounts with access to the very same directory – in case you wish several individuals to be able to access the same web content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated hosting service don’t involve a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to update your sites without a hitch. In case you’d like to restrict the access to your web content, you can alter the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP programs. Furthermore, we have prepared in-depth step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you order and which Control Panel you select upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the machine without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have registered or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want different users to be able to connect to the website content inside it with their own personal log-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate web interface.
