FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used methods for exchanging website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the option to restart an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create 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 best solution if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to access your website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have a comprehensive Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any obstacle.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t put a restriction on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a given account or to edit its access path with a few clicks. You can also delete an account with ease in case you don’t need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who’s finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve made different video tutorials, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease 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 create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which VPS plan you buy and which Control Panel you select during the order procedure – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will gain FTP access to the Virtual Private Server without having to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the basic software bundle which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even several FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want different people to be able to access the web content in it with their very own login credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, deleting or modifying an FTP account will require no more than several mouse clicks via an easy-to-work-with graphical interface.
