FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for uploading web content to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done via a user-friendly interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux shared web hosting offered by us, since we have decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can have numerous sites simultaneously or grant other individuals access to different folders. As soon as a given task has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply remove the account with several mouse clicks and quit worrying about anyone connecting to it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts that can access one and the same directory – in case you want different individuals to be able to access the very same content with totally different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don’t include a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your web files and to modify your websites with ease. In case you’d like to restrict the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP apps. Also, we’ve compiled comprehensive help articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by our company will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you purchase and which Control Panel you pick during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you’ll have FTP access to the VPS server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software bundle which comes with the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even separate FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want several users to be able to access the website content inside it using their own sign-in credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use web-based interface.
