FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular method of uploading content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to see all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help database, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a given account or to update its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you no longer need it – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to access your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different instructional videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server packages offered by us will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which package you get and which hosting Control Panel you select during the signup process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you’ll be given FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the basic software bundle that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you host or even separate FTP accounts for a single directory – if you want a number of users to be able to connect to the content inside it using their very own log-in details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few mouse clicks through a user-friendly web interface.
