File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular means for transmitting web files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux cloud hosting offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at the same time or provide other people with access to separate directories. Once a particular task has been done and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete the account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all hosting plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single click to administer various options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are incredibly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting lots of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up a new account in a client of your choosing by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account previously, you can check out our in-depth how-to videos, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll get the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter the hosting Control Panel that you’ve picked during the registration procedure – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your demands, you can have a different FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to allow several users to access that folder with their very own login details. Even if you have never used a hosting account before or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your virtual machine, since everything’s done through a time and effort saving GUI and takes only a few clicks.
