File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most famous method for transferring files to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that’s installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via an intuitive graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create several FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a specific directory and will not be able to access the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with each of the cloud hosting plans that we are offering, as we have decided not to limit this functionality. Thus, you can manage numerous Internet sites at the same time or give other people access to separate folders. Once a certain task has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply delete the account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated server package that you have opted for during the order process, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can create as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content as well. All the accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you do not need a particular account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This functionality is particularly handy in case you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT individual quits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help database that includes tutorial videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not possess any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

If you open a VPS hosting plans with our company and choose any of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it is part of the default software package that comes with all VPSs ordered with a Control Panel. This will enable you to set up as many FTP accounts as you like and to select what directory each one of them can access. If you want, you can even set up different FTP accounts for the same domain name and give different people their very own set of log-in credentials to connect to the web content. Any of the three hosting Control Panels will give you the opportunity to create, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with less than a couple of clicks, so even if you don’t have any past experience, you’ll be able to manage an account without a hitch.
