FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for transferring files to a web hosting account. With an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can set up a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to see the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are necessary to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be astonishingly easy with each of our Linux hosting packages. This feature is not restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to manage your sites and to get your website-connected tasks completed. If you hire a web developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can change the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can connect to. Useful functions such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP client programs are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you will be able to edit the password for a given FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account with no effort if you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a designer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have compiled different tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which package you order and which Control Panel you select during the subscription procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the machine without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even several accounts for one single folder – in case you want a number of people to access the website content inside it with their own personal login credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account takes no more than several clicks through an intuitive web interface.
