FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means of sending files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP app that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can set up a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with several mouse clicks. This is done via a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you will be able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to grant somebody access, for instance – a designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, including private details. Three things are needed in order to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server plan that you have picked upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a certain account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is especially handy if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT expert departs the company and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An in-depth Help database that comprises how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting services offered by us includes any cap on the total 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 the VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. What’s more, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select 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 configuration of any of them. If you want a number of people to be able to connect to one and the same directory with their own personal sign-in credentials, for example, it will take several clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t encounter any problem, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
