FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most commonly used means for uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There are several benefits of employing FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you want at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has fulfilled their job and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you run into any impediment.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans are amazingly powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting many websites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in a client of your desire by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a web hosting account before, you can watch our comprehensive educational video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we’re offering includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an account for any website hosted on your VPS, regardless of whether it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will pick when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several people to be able to set up a connection to one and the same directory using their own personal sign-in credentials, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to create a different FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t come across any difficulty, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
