What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is the most famous means for sending website files to a web hosting account. Using an FTP software program that’s pre-installed on your desktop PC or laptop, you can connect to your web hosting server and copy all the web files that you need with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can do this via a user-friendly graphical interface and it is as simple as dragging and dropping the abovementioned files. The advantage of using File Transfer Protocol is the fact that you’ll be able to create different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you want to provide someone with access, for instance – a designer, they’ll be able to access only one particular directory and will not be able to view the rest of your web content or any other info, including private details. Three things are required in order to be able to make an FTP connection – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the accounts that you have created and what directories they can access.

With a virtual private server
from our company, you will get the chance to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS packages, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve selected at signup – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia.
