File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular way to transmit files to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you would like to provide somebody with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are required to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating and administering multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our cloud website hosting plans. This feature isn’t restricted, so with our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can edit the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can access. Useful options such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP software apps are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have chosen upon signup, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you will get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content too. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a given account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT person retires from your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An elaborate Help section that contains tutorial videos will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans that we are offering has any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up an account for any site hosted on the VPS, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to access the very same folder using their very own set of log-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any impediment, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
