FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread ways to upload and download files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal option when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just a few mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each one can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to access your web content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have an extensive Help database, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you experience any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, since we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a particular account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account without effort in case you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a designer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve created a number of how-to videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a web hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you order and which hosting Control Panel you pick upon registration – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without installing any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software stack which is included in the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you host or even separate FTP accounts for a single directory – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the website content inside it using their very own personal sign-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse through a simple-to-use web-based interface.
