FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of sending files to a hosting account. With an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you can set up several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you don’t want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have elaborate help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, which makes them ideal 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 different account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to modify it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up an account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can check our comprehensive how-to videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we’re offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS package you purchase and which Control Panel you select during the order process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the server without having to install any software, as an FTP server is part of the standard software stack which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have or even separate accounts for one single directory – if you want a number of users to access the web content in it using their very own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than several clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-use interface.
