FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular means of transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done using an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared hosting packages that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can manage numerous sites all at once or provide other individuals with access to multiple directories. Once a specific job has been carried out and you would not like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password for the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting packages, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to administer various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are pretty powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a large number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive educational video clips, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will get the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked on the order page – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you would like to permit several persons to be able to connect to that folder with their own set of login credentials. Even if you have never had a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, since everything’s done through an intuitive graphical interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
