FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods for uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload if there’s a 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 connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Any of the cloud hosting plans that we’re offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design software program pre-installed on your personal computer, you’ll be able to administer multiple sites simultaneously and to keep them updated without a hitch. In case you give the login credentials to another individual to carry out a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it entirely with only a couple of mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your website content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts that can access the same folder – in case you wish different people to be able to connect to the same content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated servers don’t have any restriction on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to update your Internet sites effortlessly. In case you want to restrict the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can access or you can delete the account altogether with no more than a few clicks through the Control Panel. You will be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for various FTP client applications. Furthermore, we have elaborate step-by-step articles and how-to video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts seamlessly.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS hosting plans offered by us has a limitation on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on your Virtual Private Server, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. Moreover, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll choose when you subscribe – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of people to set up an FTP connection to the same directory with their very own set of sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take several clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not come across any complication, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
