File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most popular way to send web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web 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 GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create different accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and won’t be able to see the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three must-haves are needed to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you wish at any particular time. If 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 the web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you’ve picked during the signup process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a specific account any longer, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual quits the firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help database that includes video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you do not possess prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers offered by us has a restriction on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for any Internet site hosted on your machine, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you order – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. If you want different persons to make a connection to the very same directory with their own personal log-in details, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create an 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 will not need to deal with any problem, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
