FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for transferring files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client application that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to set up separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to access the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are necessary in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Each of the cloud website hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your sites separately or to provide other persons with access to any website in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your home PC, you will be able to run numerous websites all at once and to keep them up to date without effort. If you give the login information to some other individual to carry out a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you’ve chosen on the order form, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent persons who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT individual leaves the firm and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. A detailed Help database that contains educational video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans offered by our company has a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for any website hosted on the server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to access the exact same directory using their own personal log-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have any problems, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
