FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most popular method for transferring web files to a web hosting account. Using FTP software that’s installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done via a simple-to-work-with interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’ll be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are required in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a certain account or to change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have created different instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort if you’ve never used a website hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans that we’re offering includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you sign up – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want different users to be able to make a connection to one and the same folder with their very own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t have to deal with any problems, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
