FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread means for transmitting web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the option 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, emails or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you’re allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any given time. If you don’t want to use a specific FTP account anymore or in case a designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently existing accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have a detailed Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you need to deal with any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, as we have not put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, together with the folder that each one can access. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a specific account or to update 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 have hired a web designer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have shot different how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be provided with the chance to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all VPS packages, regardless of which Control Panel you have selected during the order process – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. Depending on your requirements, you can set up a different FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you want to permit a number of users to access that folder with their own set of sign-in details. Even if you have never used a hosting account previously or if you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any problem setting up, removing or modifying any FTP account on the VPS, as everything’s done through a simple-to-use interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
