FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for uploading website content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop PC, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the website files that you need with several clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a user-friendly GUI and it is as simple as dragging ‘n’ dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is that you are able to set up several accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you must give somebody access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to one particular directory and won’t be able to view the remaining web content or any other information, such as private details. You need three prerequisites to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are stunningly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting many Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each website that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up the account in a client of your liking by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you have never opened a hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate how-to videos, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we are offering will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick upon signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you’ll be given FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you’ve registered or even multiple accounts for one single directory – if you want different individuals to connect to the web content in it using their own set of login credentials. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than several clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-use GUI.
