File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous means for transferring website content to a web hosting account. Using FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide somebody with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. You need three things to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with each of our shared web hosting plans. This service isn’t limited, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-connected tasks done. If you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just a click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and the directories that they can access. Useful functions such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software applications are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are astonishingly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting plenty of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a hosting account before, you can check out our in-depth instructional videos, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which Control Panel you pick upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software bundle that comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you own or even separate FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want different users to be able to access the website content inside it using their own set of sign-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than several clicks through an easy-to-navigate web-based interface.
