FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of uploading web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to grant someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be really easy with any of our cloud website hosting service. This service is not limited, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can access. Handy options such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP apps are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts with access to the very same folder – in case you wish different people to be able to connect to the exact same website content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don’t include any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to update your websites effortlessly. If you want to stop the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account completely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check 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 software applications. What’s more, we have prepared in-depth step-by-step articles and how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we offer includes a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an account for any site hosted on your VPS server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you register – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, 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 a number of persons to establish an FTP connection to the exact same folder with their own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not encounter any problem, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
