FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular way to send content to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux web hosting that we offer, since we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run multiple sites at the same time or grant other persons access to multiple directories. Once a specific job has been fulfilled and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the specific FTP account or you can just remove that account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t restricted this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you don’t require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have created different how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

In case you open a VPS plans with our company and choose any of the three hosting Control Panels that we offer – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is an essential part of the software pack that comes with all VPSs ordered with a Control Panel. This will enable you to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish and to choose which directory each one of them will access. If you want, you can even create different accounts for one and the same domain and give several individuals their very own set of login credentials to connect to the web content. Each of the 3 Control Panels will offer you the possibility to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a few simple steps and with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse, so even if you do not possess past experience, you will be able to administer an account in a seamless way.
