FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transferring files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to access the remaining content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are required in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our cloud web hosting. This service isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. In case you hire a web developer and they’re done with the website, for instance, you can update the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just a click from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Handy functions such as editing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widely used FTP software programs are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the package that you’ve opted for during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account anymore, you can simply remove it and block persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT specialist retires from your company and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help section that comprises instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting service offered by our company has any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on your virtual server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different users to set up an FTP connection to the exact same directory with their own personal sign-in details, for example, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t run into any problem, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
