FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transmit content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the shared hosting service offered by our company, since we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can manage multiple Internet sites at once or provide other persons with access to separate directories. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can change the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to administer different 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

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to update the password for a given account or to change its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For your convenience, we have compiled different video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a website hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the registration procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll acquire FTP access to the virtual machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software stack that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even separate FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want several individuals to connect to the content in it with their very own sign-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
