FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular method of transmitting website content to a web hosting account. With an FTP client application that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done using a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your web content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are mandatory to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Each of the shared hosting plans offered by us will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites separately or to provide other persons with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you have a web design app pre-installed on your computer, you’ll be able to maintain numerous sites at once and to keep them up to date without effort. If you give the login details to another person to perform a certain task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it completely with just a few mouse clicks and prevent any possibility of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you have selected on the order form, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you like via the Hepsia 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 require a given account any longer, you can just remove it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is especially handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT professional leaves your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help database that comprises instructional video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts if you don’t possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by our company will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the VPS order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will have FTP access to the machine without the need to install any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle which comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you’ve got or even several accounts for one single folder – in case you want a number of users to access the website content inside it using their own set of login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a few clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-work-with web-based interface.
