FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous way to transfer website files to a hosting account. Using FTP software that is installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can make a connection to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’ll be able to create several FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you’d like to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other info, including private details. Three prerequisites are needed in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP address or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what web files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a particular FTP account any longer or in case a designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have elaborate help articles, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you need to deal with any predicament.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting offered by our company includes a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate FTP account for any site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. In addition, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different persons to be able to set up an FTP connection to the same directory using their own personal login details, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not come across any impediment, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
