File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents the most popular way to transfer content to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your website hosting server and copy all the files that you want with a few clicks of the mouse. This is done using an easy-to-work-with GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you need to grant someone access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a specific directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other info, such as private details. Three prerequisites are mandatory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain, a user name and a password.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting
You can create as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux cloud website hosting service offered by us, because we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous Internet sites all at once or provide other people with access to multiple directories. As soon as a particular task has been accomplished and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the given FTP account or you can just delete that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to administer various options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t restricted this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to update the password for a given FTP account or to update its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without any effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to access your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared a number of instructional videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
If you open a VPS servers with our company and pick any of the 3 Control Panels that we’re offering – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is an integral part of the basic software suite that comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with a Control Panel.

If you wish, you can even create separate FTP accounts for the same domain name and give different individuals their very own log-in details to connect to the web content. Any of the 3 Control Panels will give you the chance to set up, to modify or to remove an FTP account in a couple of easy steps and with no more than several clicks, so even if you do not have any past experience, you will be able to administer an FTP account without any effort.
