FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous means for transmitting web files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use 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, email accounts or other info, which makes it the perfect solution in case you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with each of the website hosting offered by us, because we have chosen not to limit this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous sites at the same time or provide other persons with access to different folders. As soon as a particular job has been carried out and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your website files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can simply delete the account with a few clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about anybody accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all web hosting packages, will allow you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order. It takes only one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to change the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have 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 change its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also delete an account without effort if you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web designer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to access your files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different video tutorials, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a website hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting offered by us includes a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on the Virtual Private Server, irrespective of whether it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you register – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the configuration of any of them. In case you want several individuals to access one and the same folder using their own set of login credentials, for example, it’ll take a few clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t come across any complication, even if you don’t have previous experience in such matters.
