FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular way to transfer website files to a web hosting account. With an FTP application that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you will be able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are mandatory in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up and managing numerous FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our shared web hosting. This functionality is not limited, so using our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your web-related tasks done. In case you hire a web designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just a click through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and the folders that they can connect to. Useful functions such as updating the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP client programs are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting a vast number of websites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up an account in your favorite FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account previously, you can watch our exhaustive educational videos, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS service offered by our company has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your virtual machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several persons to be able to set up a connection to the exact same folder with their own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t experience any impediment, even if you lack prior experience in such matters.
