FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous means of transmitting content to a hosting account. With FTP software 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 a couple of clicks. You can do this via an easy-to-use graphical interface and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using FTP is that you can create different FTP accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you would like to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to access only one particular directory and won’t be able to view the remaining content or any other information, including private details. Three things are required to be able to establish an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP address or a domain name, a username and a password.
FTP Accounts in Hosting
Any of the hosting plans that we offer will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other people access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software program installed on your home computer, you’ll be able to run numerous sites at once and to update them without a hitch. In case you give the login information to some other person for a specific task, you will be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a couple of clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even different accounts with access to the exact same directory – in case you wish different users to be able to access the very same website content with completely different login credentials.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages offered by us will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you select at signup – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In all cases, you will get FTP access to the VPS server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an essential part of the software stack that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even multiple accounts for a single directory – if you want different users to connect to the content in it with their own personal login details. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few mouse clicks through a simple-to-navigate GUI.
