FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous means of uploading files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software app that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several mouse clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what web files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you wish at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any predicament.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you have chosen upon registration, as the FTP access is among the default features that you’ll get. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to manage your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a given account any longer, you can just delete it and block individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual retires from the company and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. A comprehensive Help section that comprises how-to video clips will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have no prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will have the option to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS setups, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve picked during the order process – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can set up a separate FTP account for each website or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you wish to allow a number of persons to access that folder using their very own sign-in details. Even if you have never opened a web hosting account before or if you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your VPS, as everything’s done through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and takes just a few mouse clicks.
