FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method of sending content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-use GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, including private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux hosting packages that we’re offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at the same time or provide other individuals with access to separate folders. Once a specific job has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are really powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting lots of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included 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. What’s more, you can set up an account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check our elaborate instructional videos, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will have the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, regardless of the Control Panel that you have selected during the order process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your demands, you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you wish to permit a number of people to access that folder using their very own set of log-in details. Even if you’ve never had a hosting account before or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything’s done through an easy-to-use web-based interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
