FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used ways to upload and download web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There are a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the perfect option especially if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering, because we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. In this way, you can run numerous Internet sites simultaneously or grant other individuals access to different folders. As soon as a particular task has been fulfilled and you don’t want that individual to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared plans, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one click to administer various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not put a limit on this functionality with any of our plans. 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’ll be able to change the password for a particular account or to update its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account with ease if you no longer need it – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to connect to your files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different educational videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort in case you have never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we offer will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which VPS package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick upon registration – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. In all cases, you will be given FTP access to the server without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software stack that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even multiple FTP accounts for one single folder – in case you want several users to be able to connect to the content inside it using their own set of login details. With any of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than several clicks of the mouse through an easy-to-navigate interface.
