FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means of transmitting files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the website hosting packages that we’re offering, since we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous sites simultaneously or grant other people access to separate directories. As soon as a given task has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can change the password for the given FTP account or you can simply remove the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting packages, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages are exceptionally powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting numerous sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can watch our detailed instructional videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will have the ability to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, irrespective of the Control Panel that you have selected on the order page – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your necessities, you can set up a different FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a certain folder – if you would like to allow different users to be able to access that folder with their own set of sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, since everything is done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
