FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of uploading web content to a hosting account. With an FTP software program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you want at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a web designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you encounter any difficulties.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the plan that you’ve chosen during the order process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual exits your company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help database that contains instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will get the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server packages, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the registration procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your necessities, you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to permit several persons to access that folder with their very own set of log-in details. Even if you have never had a web hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on the VPS server, as everything’s done through an easy-to-use web-based interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
