FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for uploading website content to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done via an easy-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our web hosting plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our time and effort saving Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they are done with the website, for example, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP client applications are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you have selected at signup, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll get. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you wish from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can just delete it and stop individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT individual retires from your company and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An elaborate Help database that includes how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans offered by our company includes a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you order – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want several people to be able to set up a connection to the same directory with their very own set of sign-in details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any predicaments, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
