FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods of uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will take care of the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume a download/upload when there’s a problem with the connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux web hosting offered by us, because we have decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can maintain multiple Internet sites at the same time or give other people access to separate directories. As soon as a specific job has been accomplished and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can edit the password for the FTP account or you can simply remove the account with a couple of mouse clicks and quit worrying about anybody using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting plans, will allow you to view the complete list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this feature with any of our plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a certain FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort in case you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a developer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have made a number of educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you’ll have the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server packages, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve picked upon signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your needs, you can set up a different FTP account for every website or a number of FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you’d like to allow different users to access that folder with their own log-in details. Even if you have never used a website hosting account previously or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any problems setting up, removing or editing any FTP account on your VPS server, as everything is done through a simple-to-use web-based interface and takes just a few clicks.
