File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular means of sending files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three things are necessary to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any particular time. If you don’t want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a designer has done their job and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently active accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you run into any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you have chosen during the subscription process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you like through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. 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 simply remove it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a web developer or if an IT person retires from the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. A detailed Help section that comprises instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you get and which Control Panel you pick during the order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the virtual server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software stack which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even several FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want different people to connect to the web content inside it using their very own personal login credentials. With any of the Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks through a user-friendly web interface.
