FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used ways to send web files between a PC and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared hosting that we’re offering, since we have decided not to restrict this service. In this way, you can maintain numerous sites all at once or provide other people with access to different directories. Once a certain task has been completed and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can change the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to administer different options for any of them – to modify the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need, even separate accounts that can access the same directory – in case you wish different people to be able to connect to the very same website content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don’t involve any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to modify your websites without a hitch. If you’d like to limit the access to your website content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can remove the account with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if necessary. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP software applications. What’s more, we’ve got exhaustive help articles and educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll be provided with the ability to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS plans, regardless of the Control Panel that you have selected during the signup process – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for each Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – in case you would like to allow different persons to be able to connect to that folder with their very own set of sign-in credentials. Even if you have never used a web hosting account previously or if you have experience only with a shared one, you will not have any problem setting up, deleting or modifying any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything is done through a simple-to-navigate web interface and takes just a few clicks of the mouse.
