FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most widespread methods of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal solution especially when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the Linux website hosting plans that we’re offering, as we have decided not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can manage numerous sites at once or grant other individuals access to different directories. Once a given job has been done and you do not want that individual to be able to access your website files any longer, you can change the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and quit worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting packages, will permit you to view the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one single click to manage different options for any of them – to modify the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated package that you’ve picked on the order page, as the FTP access is one of the default features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you can set up as many FTP accounts as you want through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a particular account any longer, you can just delete it and block people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter functionality is particularly handy if you use the services of a web designer or if an IT person departs the firm and you don’t want them to connect to the web files any longer. An elaborate Help section that contains video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will be provided with the option to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server setups, regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve chosen upon signup – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Depending on your requirements, you can create a separate FTP account for each site or several FTP accounts with access to a particular folder – in case you would like to allow different users to be able to access that folder with their very own set of sign-in details. Even if you have never had a website hosting account before or in case you have experience only with a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on your Virtual Private Server, since everything is done through a simple-to-use GUI and takes only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
