FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method of transmitting files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to provide a third party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. In case you don’t want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently active FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t limited this feature with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to change the password for a specific account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t need it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have created a number of instructional video clips, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you’ve never used a website hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will be given the opportunity to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server packages, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected during the signup procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can set up a separate FTP account for each website or several accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you wish to allow several persons to be able to connect to that folder with their own set of login details. Even if you have never used a hosting account previously or in case you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the server, since everything is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and takes just a couple of mouse clicks.
