FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method for transmitting web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client application 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 several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide a third party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be quite easy with each of our Linux shared packages. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the website, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can connect to. Useful options such as updating the password or the access path and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP software programs are also just one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are stunningly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a large number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed educational video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll have the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, regardless of which Control Panel you have selected during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your needs, you can set up a separate FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you want to allow a number of users to be able to connect to that folder with their own sign-in credentials. Even if you have never opened a hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your VPS, since everything’s done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and takes only a couple of clicks.
