FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most popular means of transferring web content to a hosting account. Using an FTP software application that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks. This is done via a simple-to-use graphical interface 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 separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you must give somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other persons access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to administer numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them updated with ease. In case you give the login credentials to another person to do a given task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to update its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have shot a number of educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you have never used a web hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by our company will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the registration procedure – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the virtual server without installing any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even several accounts for a single directory – if you want several individuals to be able to connect to the web content in it with their very own sign-in credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks through an intuitive interface.
