FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for sending files to a web hosting account. With FTP client software that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with several clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are needed to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing numerous FTP accounts will be exceptionally easy with any of our shared hosting. This functionality isn’t restricted, so with our easy-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one mouse click via the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as updating the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP apps are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts with access to one and the same folder – if you want several users to be able to access the exact same web content with different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don’t have a limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your Internet sites without effort. If you wish to limit the access to your web content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a few clicks from the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP software programs. In addition, we have prepared elaborate step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS that we are offering includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different users to establish a connection to the same folder using their very own set of sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t come across any complication, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
