FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to upload web content to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are compulsory 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 Website Hosting

Any of the website hosting packages that we offer will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to grant other persons access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you have a web design program installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run multiple sites simultaneously and to keep them updated with ease. In case you give the login info to some other individual for a given task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to edit its access path with several clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without efforts if you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve shot different how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a web hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we’re offering will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select during the order procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In all cases, you will acquire FTP access to the VPS without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you own or even separate accounts for one single directory – if you want several people to access the website content in it using their very own personal login details. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few mouse clicks via a simple-to-navigate web interface.
