FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means for sending content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Each of the shared web hosting packages that we offer will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your sites separately or to grant other persons access to any site in your hosting account. If you have a web design software application pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at the same time and to update them without any effort. In case you provide the login details to another individual to carry out a particular task, you’ll be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a couple of clicks and avoid any possibility of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected upon signup, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a certain account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT professional exits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. A detailed Help section that comprises tutorial video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by us includes any limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on your VPS, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different persons to establish an FTP connection to the same folder using their very own log-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t experience any difficulty, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
