File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous means for sending website content to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are obligatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the cloud website hosting plans that we are offering, because we’ve decided not to restrict this service. Thus, you can run multiple sites at the same time or grant other people access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific task has been carried out and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the FTP account in question or you can just delete the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting packages, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. 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-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are astonishingly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a vast number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to view the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, 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 personal computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can watch our detailed how-to video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS plans that we’re offering has a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an FTP account for each website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to set up an FTP connection to one and the same directory using their very own sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t encounter any complication, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
