Learn more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the main benefit of using multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is the most popular means of sending web files to a hosting account. With an FTP client program that is installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you need with a few clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-navigate interface and it is as easy as dragging ‘n’ dropping the aforementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you can set up several accounts, each with a different level of access to your online storage space, so if you want to provide a third party with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to connect only to a particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your content or any other information, such as personal details. You need three things in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally a domain name or an IP address, a user name and a password.

For your convenience, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and the directories that they can connect to. Handy options such as modifying the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for commonly used FTP software applications are also just a click away.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers
With a VPS server
from us, you’ll be provided with the option to create unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you have selected during the signup process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your requirements, you can set up a different FTP account for every website or several accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to allow a number of people to access that folder using their own set of log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never had a website hosting account previously or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the VPS, as everything’s done through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
