FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for uploading web files to a hosting account. With FTP software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an intuitive graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create separate 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 instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are necessary to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux hosting that we’re offering, because we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run multiple sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple folders. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all hosting accounts, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you’ve chosen during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and block persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT professional retires from the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help repository that contains how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t possess any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting packages offered by our company includes a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for each site hosted on the server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want several users to be able to connect to the exact same directory using their own set of login credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not encounter any complication, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
