FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of uploading website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client program that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as personal details. You need three prerequisites in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse through the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you can create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have exhaustive help articles, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you have picked at signup, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a specific account anymore, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a developer or if an IT professional departs the firm and you do not want them to access the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help database that contains how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you do not possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which Control Panel you pick on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software suite that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you own or even separate FTP accounts for one single directory – if you want different users to be able to connect to the content inside it with their very own set of log-in credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than several clicks of the mouse via an intuitive graphical interface.
