File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is the most famous method for transferring web content to a web hosting account. Using FTP client software that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this using an easy-to-navigate graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to set up separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three things are required to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux shared hosting service offered by our company, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple websites at once or give other people access to separate directories. As soon as a given task has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to access your files any longer, you can change the password for the FTP account in question or you can just remove the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes just a click to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected on the order page, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll get. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your web content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a certain account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT expert departs your firm and you don’t want them to access the web files anymore. An extensive Help section that contains educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers that we offer has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you order – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to be able to establish an FTP connection to the same directory with their own set of log-in credentials, for example, it will take a couple of clicks to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you will not need to deal with any problem, even if you do not have any prior experience in such matters.
