Understand more about what FTP actually is, what it does and what is the main advantage of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous method for uploading website content to a hosting account. Using FTP client software that is installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the files that you want with a couple of clicks. This is done via a user-friendly GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up separate accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you need to provide a third party with access, for example – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only a specific directory and won’t be able to see the rest of your content or any other information, including private details. Three prerequisites are compulsory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
are extremely powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting an extensive number of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we’ve 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 Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account. For each of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to change it, if necessary. Also, you can set up the account in an FTP client of your choosing by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never had a hosting account before, you can watch our detailed instructional video clips, which are available in the same Control Panel section.
FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
None of the Linux VPS web hosting service
that we’re offering has any limitation on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for any website hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you sign up – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to establish an FTP connection to the exact same directory with their very own set of login details, for example, it will take several mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you won’t have to deal with any impediments, even if you do not have prior experience in such matters.
