FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transferring content to a hosting account. With FTP client software that’s installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you’re able to create several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you must provide a 3rd party with access, for example – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular folder and won’t be able to access the remaining content or any other info, including personal details. Three things are required 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

Setting up and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our Linux cloud hosting packages. This functionality isn’t restricted, so using our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need to, in order to administer your sites and to get your web-related tasks accomplished. In case you hire a web developer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the accounts that you’ve set up and what directories they can access. Handy functions such as modifying the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP client apps are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting an extensive number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you can check out our detailed tutorial video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

With a virtual private server from us, you will get the ability to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server packages, regardless of which Control Panel you have selected during the server order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can create a different 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 be able to access that folder using their very own sign-in details. Even if you have never had a hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything is done via an easy-to-use GUI and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
