FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread methods for exchanging files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best option especially if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux hosting services that we’re offering, since we’ve chosen not to limit this functionality. In this way, you can run numerous websites simultaneously or provide other persons with access to multiple directories. As soon as a particular task has been done and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your files anymore, you can update the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all website hosting accounts, will permit you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort in case you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who is done with the website and you don’t want them to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we’ve prepared a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll have the possibility to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to access your web content. This is valid for all VPS setups, irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you’ve selected during the signup procedure – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. Based on your necessities, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or several FTP accounts with access to a given folder – if you wish to allow different individuals to connect to that folder using their own set of login credentials. Even if you have never opened a web hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you will not have any problems creating, removing or editing any FTP account on your VPS, since everything is done through an easy-to-work-with graphical interface and takes just a couple of clicks.
