FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular means for transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There are a number of pros of employing FTP, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the very best option in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering, as we’ve chosen not to restrict this service. Thus, you can maintain multiple Internet sites all at once or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a given job has been carried out and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about somebody accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all hosting accounts, will allow you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t limited this feature with any of our plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to change the password for a particular FTP account or to update its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your web files anymore. For your convenience, we have selected a number of how-to video clips, that will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly if you have never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you will have the possibility to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all virtual server configurations, irrespective of which Control Panel you have chosen during the subscription process – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. Based on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for each website or a number of FTP accounts with access to a certain folder – in case you want to allow several users to be able to connect to that folder using their very own set of login credentials. Even if you have never had a web hosting account before or in case you’ve only used a shared one, you will not have any problem creating, removing or modifying any FTP account on the virtual machine, as everything is done through a user-friendly GUI and takes just a few clicks.
