FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for sending content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the hosting service offered by us, because we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous websites at once or give other people access to different folders. Once a given job has been completed and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve picked during the registration process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account anymore, you can simply remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT professional departs your firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files anymore. A comprehensive Help section that includes instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you order and which Control Panel you select on the order form – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the VPS without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software stack which is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even multiple accounts for a single folder – if you want different individuals to connect to the web content in it with their very own set of sign-in details. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-use web-based interface.
