FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous method of transferring website files to a hosting account. With an FTP client that’s pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can connect to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this using a simple-to-use interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up different accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three prerequisites are necessary in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the Linux shared hosting services offered by our company, since we’ve decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can have numerous Internet sites all at once or give other people access to separate folders. Once a specific task has been carried out and you don’t want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about someone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated package that you have picked during the order process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account anymore, you can simply delete it and stop persons who have used it before from accessing it again. This functionality is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT individual leaves the company and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. A comprehensive Help database that contains video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we are offering will permit you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which Control Panel you select during the VPS order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will acquire FTP access to the machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite which is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even several FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want different persons to connect to the content inside it with their own set of login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than several mouse clicks through an easy-to-use graphical interface.
