FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used methods for transferring website files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the very best option particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

Each of the web hosting plans offered by our company will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your sites independently or to provide other people with access to any website in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software app pre-installed on your PC, you’ll be able to administer numerous Internet sites at once and to keep them updated effortlessly. In case you give the login information to another individual to do a given task, you’ll be able to update the password for that FTP account or to delete it altogether with just a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting numerous websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to change it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your PC, which will save you time. If you have never used a web hosting account previously, you can check out our exhaustive how-to videos, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we offer will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you choose upon signup – cPanel, DirectAdmin or Hepsia. In any case, you will be granted FTP access to the VPS server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software suite that comes with the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you own or even different FTP accounts for one single directory – in case you want several people to be able to access the content in it with their own set of log-in credentials. With any of the Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a few clicks via a simple-to-work-with web-based interface.
