FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous way to transmit website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a few clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you can set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the shared hosting plans that we are offering, since we’ve chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites simultaneously or grant other individuals access to different folders. As soon as a particular task has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply delete the account with several clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked on the order page, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you do not require a certain account any longer, you can simply remove it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a developer or in case an IT specialist leaves your company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files any longer. A comprehensive Help library that contains how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll be given the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, no matter the Control Panel that you’ve selected during the server order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Depending on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for every website or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you would like to permit different users to be able to connect to that folder with their own sign-in details. Even if you have never opened a website hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on the Virtual Private Server, since everything is done through a simple-to-work-with GUI and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
