FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used ways to transfer web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With 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 any other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you will 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 anymore or if a web designer has fulfilled their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one mouse click. You will be able to update the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have a detailed Help library, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you need to deal with any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are rather powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an immense number of websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each website that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never opened a hosting account previously, you can check our elaborate instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting packages that we offer includes a restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an account for any Internet site hosted on the server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select when you join – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the configuration of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to set up a connection to one and the same folder using their own personal sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take several clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t encounter any problem, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
