FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means for transmitting web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to give somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be very easy with each of our shared website hosting plans. This service isn’t restricted, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks accomplished. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can edit the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can connect to. Useful functions such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widespread FTP software apps are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have opted for upon signup, since the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and stop persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT specialist exits your company and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. A detailed Help database that includes how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be given the ability to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, regardless of which Control Panel you’ve selected during the order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can create a different FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a particular folder – if you would like to permit a number of people to be able to connect to that folder with their own sign-in details. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything’s done via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
