FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of transferring website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages. This functionality is not restricted, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage 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 change the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can access. Useful options such as modifying the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP client programs are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a certain FTP account or to edit its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without efforts if you do not require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected a number of video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a website hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll get the opportunity to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter the Control Panel that you have selected during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your needs, you can set up a different FTP account for each site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to allow several individuals to access that folder using their own set of log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the virtual machine, since everything’s done via a simple-to-navigate web interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
