FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method for sending website files to a hosting account. With FTP software that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an easy-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to give somebody access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one particular folder and will not be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Each of the shared website hosting plans offered by us will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to grant other people access to any Internet site in your hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software program pre-installed on your personal computer, you will be able to run multiple sites at once and to keep them up to date without any effort. If you give the login details to some other person to perform a particular task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a couple of clicks and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we have not restricted this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort in case you no longer need it – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease in case you have never used a website hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we are offering will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which Control Panel you choose during the order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be given FTP access to the machine without the need to install any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software suite that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have registered or even separate FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want a number of individuals to connect to the content in it using their own personal sign-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will require no more than several mouse clicks through a simple-to-use web interface.
