FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of transmitting web files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with several mouse clicks. This is done via an intuitive 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 set up several accounts, each one 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 will be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three things are required in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the shared website hosting plans offered by our company, as we have decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites at once or grant other individuals access to different directories. Once a given job has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not put a limit on this service with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a certain account or to update its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort if you do not require it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have created different tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you have never used a hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS hosting plans that we offer includes a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any site hosted on the machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you sign up – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several individuals to be able to set up an FTP connection to the very same folder using their own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any predicament, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
