FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for sending website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP client app that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you have to provide a third party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to connect only to one specific directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to give other people access to any Internet site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to run multiple Internet sites at once and to keep them updated with no effort. In case you give the login info to another person to carry out a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve picked upon signup, since the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can simply delete it and prevent people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful if you use the services of a designer or in case an IT expert departs your company and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. An exhaustive Help library that comprises instructional videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will be provided with the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS server plans, no matter which Control Panel you’ve selected during the order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you wish to permit different users to connect to that folder with their own sign-in details. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account before or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the VPS server, since everything is done through a time and effort saving web interface and takes only a couple of clicks.
