FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used means for exchanging website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, including the option to restart a download/upload when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the best solution especially when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to choose what web files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. In case you do not want to use a given FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their job and you do not want them to access the web content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, together with various options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You will be able to update the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages are extremely powerful, which makes them perfect for hosting lots of Internet sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to put a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different FTP account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you will be able to view the access path and to update it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up the account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can watch our detailed video tutorials, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by our company will permit you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which hosting Control Panel you select during the VPS order process – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the VPS server without installing any software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you’ve registered or even different accounts for a single directory – if you want several individuals to access the web content inside it with their very own personal sign-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or modifying an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use web interface.
