FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to transfer files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client program that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an intuitive GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other info, including private details. You need three things in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have detailed help tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you encounter any difficulties.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting are incredibly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting multiple Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to change it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can check our elaborate how-to video clips, which can be accessed through the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we offer will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which Control Panel you select during the signup process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll obtain FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the basic 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 have registered or even several FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want a number of individuals to connect to the content in it using their own sign-in credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few clicks through an easy-to-navigate web-based interface.
