Discover more about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means for transferring web files to a web hosting account. With an FTP program that is pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can make a connection to your website hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with a couple of mouse clicks. You can do this via an intuitive GUI and it is as easy as dragging & dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you’re able to set up different FTP accounts, each with a different level of access to your web space, so if you have to provide someone with access, for example – a designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific folder and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, such as private details. Three things are required to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what files and folders each one can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their job and you do not want them to connect to your website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an extensive Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you come across any impediment.

With a virtual private server
from us, you will be given the possibility to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all virtual server setups, irrespective of the Control Panel that you have picked during the order process – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your needs, you can have a separate FTP account for each Internet site or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you would like to allow several users to access that folder with their very own login credentials. Even if you’ve never used a website hosting account before or if you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, since everything’s done through a simple-to-navigate web-based interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
