FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of transferring web content to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few clicks. This is done using an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Each of the cloud web hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to give other people access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to run multiple websites at once and to keep them up to date without efforts. In case you provide the login details to some other individual to carry out a given task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a couple of mouse clicks and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you no longer need it – for instance, if you have hired a designer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files any longer. For your convenience, we have made a number of video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a web hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which Control Panel you pick upon registration – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will receive FTP access to the virtual server without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software bundle that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even multiple accounts for a single folder – if you want different persons to be able to connect to the website content inside it using their very own set of login details. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks via a simple-to-work-with web interface.
