FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for transmitting content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to give someone access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the cloud hosting that we offer, because we have chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can manage multiple Internet sites all at once or grant other people access to separate folders. Once a given task has been completed and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with several clicks and stop worrying about anybody connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only a click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a vast number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up the account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a web hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive instructional videos, which can be accessed through the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the VPS order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will get FTP access to the server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – if you want a number of users to be able to connect to the content inside it with their own personal sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use web interface.
