FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to upload web content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you are able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. You need three things to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the shared web hosting offered by our company, since we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can manage numerous websites all at once or give other persons access to different directories. As soon as a certain job has been completed and you would not like that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting packages, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one single click to administer various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an immense number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can check out our exhaustive how-to videos, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers offered by our company has a cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on your server, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you register – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want a number of individuals to set up an FTP connection to the exact same directory using their own login details, for example, it’ll take a few clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t have any problem, even if you don’t have any previous experience in such matters.
