FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of uploading website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software program that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. You need three prerequisites to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Each of the cloud web hosting plans that we offer will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. If you have a web design application installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple sites at once and to keep them up to date with ease. If you provide the login credentials to another individual to carry out a given task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a specific FTP account or to update its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve made different tutorial videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a website hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans offered by our company will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which package you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick upon signup – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the server without installing any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even multiple accounts for one single directory – if you want a number of people to be able to connect to the content inside it using their very own set of log-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few mouse clicks through an intuitive graphical interface.
