File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous method of transmitting website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. You can do this using a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to set up separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you like at any particular moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, 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-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you have to deal with any impediments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t put a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve shot different how-to videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers offered by our company has a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you order – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several users to connect to the very same folder using their own log-in credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have to deal with any problem, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
