FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transferring website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via an easy-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you are able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This functionality is not limited, so with our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you have to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can connect to. Handy options such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP applications are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a given account or to update its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For your convenience, we have made different tutorial videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you’ve never used a website hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will have the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server setups, no matter which Control Panel you have selected at signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for each website or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – if you’d like to permit a number of users to connect to that folder with their very own set of login details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your machine, since everything is done via a simple-to-use web-based interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
