FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transferring files to a hosting account. With an FTP app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a few mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create separate FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to give someone access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their job and you don’t want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are extremely powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting multiple Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up the account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a web hosting account before, you can check out our comprehensive how-to video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers offered by our company includes a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on the VPS server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want several persons to be able to set up an FTP connection to the exact same directory with their very own log-in credentials, for instance, it will take several clicks of the mouse to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any impediment, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
