FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method of transmitting website files to a hosting account. With FTP client software that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to grant someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Any of the 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 provide other persons with access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software application pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to run multiple websites all at once and to keep them updated without a hitch. If you provide the login info to some other person to perform a given task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an extensive number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your desire by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you have never used a hosting account before, you can check our comprehensive how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers offered by our company has a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for any website hosted on your server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want different users to be able to make an FTP connection to the exact same folder with their own set of log-in details, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any problems, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
