FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to transfer website content to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific folder and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three things are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Any of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to grant other people access to any site in your hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your PC, you will be able to manage numerous Internet sites at the same time and to update them without efforts. In case you give the login information to another person to do a particular task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected during the subscription process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a specific account anymore, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT specialist departs the company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help section that comprises tutorial videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we are offering has a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for each website hosted on the machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want several persons to be able to make an FTP connection to one and the same directory using their own set of sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t need to deal with any predicament, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
