FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular means for exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared web hosting services offered by our company, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can maintain numerous websites simultaneously or grant other persons access to different directories. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your web files any longer, you can edit the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove that account with a few clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even multiple accounts with access to the very same folder – in case you would like several persons to be able to access the very same website content with completely different login details. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services do not have a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to update your sites effortlessly. In case you wish to block the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account completely with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-configuration file for various FTP software programs. In addition, we have prepared detailed help articles and tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting services offered by our company includes a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you order – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of persons to establish a connection to the very same folder using their own set of login credentials, for instance, it’ll take several mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not run into any difficulty, even if you lack past experience in such matters.
