FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for uploading content to a web hosting account. With FTP software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few clicks. This is done using a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared web hosting offered by us, as we have chosen not to limit this service. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites simultaneously or provide other people with access to different directories. As soon as a specific job has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only a click 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

Using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts with access to the exact same folder – in case you wish different persons to be able to connect to the exact same content with totally different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated plans do not involve any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to modify your sites effortlessly. In case you would like to block the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP clients. Also, we have prepared elaborate help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will permit you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you get and which Control Panel you pick at signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you will gain FTP access to the machine without having to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the basic software stack that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even several accounts for a single folder – in case you want different persons to be able to connect to the website content in it using their very own personal login credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will take no more than several clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-use GUI.
