FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for uploading files to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide a third party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer, because we have chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites at the same time or grant other persons access to separate directories. Once a specific task has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the particular FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about somebody connecting to it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only a click to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are truly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a large number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if needed. In addition, you can set up the account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can check out our exhaustive tutorial videos, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

In case you open a VPS web hosting plans with us and pick any of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we’re offering – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it is an essential part of the standard software stack that comes with all virtual servers ordered with a Control Panel.

If you want, you can even create different FTP accounts for the exact same domain name and give different people their own set of sign-in credentials to access the website content. Each of the three Control Panels will offer you the opportunity to set up, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of simple steps and with no more than a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have any prior experience, you will be able to administer an account without any efforts.
