FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means for transferring files to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can connect to your website hosting server and copy all the website files that you want with several clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-work-with graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create separate FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide someone with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only a particular folder and won’t be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, including private details. You need three things to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the Linux cloud web hosting that we offer, as we’ve decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can have numerous websites at the same time or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can just delete the account with several mouse clicks and stop worrying about anyone using it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to manage different options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are really powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting an extensive number of Internet 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 Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Furthermore, you can set up a new account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can check our exhaustive how-to video clips, which are available in the same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting services offered by our company includes any limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want several people to be able to access the exact same directory with their very own log-in details, for instance, it’ll take several clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not encounter any impediments, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
