FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular method of transferring website content to a hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Each of the website hosting plans that we are offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to run numerous Internet sites at once and to update them without any efforts. If you provide the login details to some other individual to do a specific task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with just a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are very powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an immense number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth video tutorials, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages offered by us has any limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate account for each Internet site hosted on the VPS server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different persons to establish an FTP connection to one and the same folder using their very own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not encounter any impediments, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
