FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for transferring web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our cloud website hosting plans. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click of the mouse via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP client programs are also just a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated package that you’ve chosen at signup, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a given account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful if you use the services of a developer or if an IT specialist leaves your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files anymore. An exhaustive Help library that contains educational videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we’re offering will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick during the signup process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you will be given FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even separate accounts for one single directory – in case you want several individuals to access the web content inside it with their own log-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
