File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular means of transmitting web content to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks. You can do this using an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three things are compulsory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our Linux web hosting plans. This service isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to manage your websites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. If you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or remove the entire FTP account with just a click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you’ll be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what folders they can access. Handy functions such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP clients are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are pretty powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an immense number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your computer, which will save you time. In case you have never had a hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth how-to videos, which can be accessed through the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be given the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server configurations, irrespective of the Control Panel that you have picked on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your demands, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to permit several people to access that folder using their very own set of log-in details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything’s done via a user-friendly GUI and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
