FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method of uploading website content to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a couple of clicks. This is done using a user-friendly interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is that you will be able to create separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you’d like to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining content or any other information, such as personal details. Three things are needed to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the hosting plans that we offer, because we have decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can run numerous sites all at once or give other individuals access to separate folders. Once a given task has been carried out and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can modify the password for the given FTP account or you can just remove that account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about somebody accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared packages, will allow you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just a click to manage various options for any of them – to change the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts with access to one and the same folder – if you want different people to be able to connect to the exact same website content with entirely different login details. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t include any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your websites with ease. If you wish to block the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account altogether with no more than a couple of mouse clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP client apps. Also, we’ve prepared elaborate help articles and how-to videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans that we offer has any limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for any Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will choose when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to establish a connection to one and the same folder using their very own set of log-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any problem, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
