FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of transferring files to a web hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give someone access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has done their task and you don’t want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one click. You will be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any impediments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you would like, even separate accounts that can access the very same directory – if you want several users to be able to connect to the exact same web content with different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated services do not involve any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your websites without effort. In case you wish to stop the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if necessary. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP clients. In addition, we’ve got in-depth help articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting services that we offer includes any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate FTP account for each site hosted on the machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you join – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different users to be able to establish an FTP connection to the same folder using their very own login details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any problem, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
