FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to upload website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done using an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud website hosting packages offered by our company, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. In this way, you can maintain multiple websites at once or provide other persons with access to multiple directories. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files anymore, you can change the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting are amazingly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a vast number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check our detailed how-to videos, which are available in the exact same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we’re offering has a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an account for any site hosted on your machine, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you join – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of persons to make an FTP connection to the same directory with their own log-in details, for example, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not encounter any complications, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
