FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous way to upload web content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that is installed on your desktop PC 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. This is done via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your websites independently or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software application pre-installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run multiple Internet sites all at once and to keep them up to date with ease. In case you give the login details to some other individual to perform a given task, you will be able to change the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a couple of clicks and avoid any chance of unauthorized access to your website content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a developer who is done with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we’re offering will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In all cases, you will be provided with FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software suite which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even multiple accounts for one single directory – if you want several persons to access the web content inside it using their own personal login credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use interface.
