FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods for uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will cope with all the rest. There are a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux shared hosting that we offer, as we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple sites at the same time or grant other people access to different folders. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can change the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting plans, will allow you to check the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click to administer various options for any of them – to update the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want, even different accounts with access to the very same folder – if you wish several individuals to be able to access the same content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don’t involve any limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to manage your web files and to update your websites without efforts. In case you’d like to stop the access to your website content, you can alter the folder that an account can connect to or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few mouse clicks via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software programs. Furthermore, we’ve prepared exhaustive help articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without any hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from us, you’ll get the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS configurations, no matter which hosting Control Panel you’ve selected during the VPS order process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. Based on your necessities, you can create a different FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you wish to allow a number of people to connect to that folder using their own personal login details. Even if you’ve never had a web hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any difficulties creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on your virtual server, as everything is done via an easy-to-work-with GUI and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
