FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with any of our shared plans. This functionality isn’t limited, so using our easy-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your web-connected tasks completed. If you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with just one click of the mouse through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up and what folders they can connect to. Useful functions such as modifying the password or the access path and downloading an auto-configuration file for famous FTP software programs are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, since we have not set a limit on this functionality with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the full list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to edit its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account with ease in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created different tutorial videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without effort if you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will have the opportunity to create unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server plans, irrespective of which Control Panel you’ve chosen upon signup – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your necessities, you can create a different FTP account for each Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – if you wish to permit a number of individuals to connect to that folder using their own personal log-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a website hosting account previously or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problems setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on your virtual machine, as everything’s done through a simple-to-work-with interface and takes only a couple of mouse clicks.
