FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is the most famous method for uploading content to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your hosting server and copy all of the website files that you want with a few clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-work-with interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can set up different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you want to give somebody access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular folder and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, such as personal details. Three things are obligatory to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve picked upon signup, as the FTP access is among the default features that you will be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t need a specific account any longer, you can just remove it and prevent individuals who have used it before from accessing it again. This option is particularly useful if you use the services of a developer or if an IT individual exits your firm and you do not want them to access the website files anymore.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS plans offered by us includes any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an account for any site hosted on your VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Besides, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you subscribe – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want a number of persons to set up a connection to the very same directory with their own personal login details, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you will not need to deal with any predicament, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
