FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents the most famous means for uploading website content to a hosting account. With an FTP client application that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. This is done using a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’ll be able to create different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to grant somebody access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are needed to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux shared hosting packages that we are offering, since we have chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple directories. Once a specific job has been completed and you would not like that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone using it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will permit you to view the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting are rather powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting plenty of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up the account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never had a hosting account before, you can check our elaborate instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS

If you want, you can even set up separate accounts for one and the same domain name and give a number of users their very own personal sign-in credentials to access the content. Each of the three hosting Control Panels will offer you the opportunity to set up, to modify or to remove an FTP account in several simple steps and with no more than a few mouse clicks, so even in case you don’t possess past experience, you’ll be able to administer an FTP account without effort.
