FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular method for transferring web content to a hosting account. With an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the Linux web hosting offered by our company, as we have decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have numerous Internet sites all at once or grant other people access to multiple directories. Once a certain job has been accomplished and you do not want that person to be able to access your web files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the given FTP account or you can simply remove that account with several clicks and stop worrying about anybody accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one click 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 Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated plan that you have picked during the signup process, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not need a particular account any longer, you can simply delete it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly handy in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT specialist leaves your firm and you do not want them to connect to the web files any longer. An in-depth Help library that contains educational video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we offer includes a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any site hosted on your virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick when you join – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want several persons to be able to set up an FTP connection to the very same directory using their own personal sign-in credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t come across any complication, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
