File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most widespread methods for uploading and downloading files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There’re several advantages of employing FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload if there’s a problem with the connection or 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 hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux shared hosting offered by us, because we’ve chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous Internet sites simultaneously or give other people access to multiple directories. As soon as a specific job has been carried out and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can modify the password for the FTP account in question or you can simply delete that account with several clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting plans, will allow you to check the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you will be able to change the password for a given account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort if you no longer need it – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have created a number of instructional video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a web hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the VPS hosting that we are offering has a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up an account for any site hosted on your virtual server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you will choose when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different users to be able to make an FTP connection to the same folder with their very own set of login details, for example, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you will not encounter any problem, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
