FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can set up a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few clicks. This is done using an intuitive interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you are able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are needed in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any given time. If you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their job and you don’t want them to connect to the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have comprehensive help articles, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any impediments.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you would like, even multiple accounts that can access the same directory – if you would like several individuals to be able to access the exact same web content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages don’t have any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your website files and to modify your sites without effort. In case you would like to restrict the access to your content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account with no more than a couple of mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software applications. What’s more, we have comprehensive step-by-step articles and tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages that we’re offering includes any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site hosted on the VPS, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you register – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want different persons to be able to connect to the very same folder with their very own login credentials, for example, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any impediment, even if you don’t have prior experience in such matters.
