FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods for exchanging files between a computer and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will cope with all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the perfect solution particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what files and folders each account can access. There’s no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular moment. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account any longer or if a web designer has done their task and you don’t want them to access your website content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to view all currently existing accounts listed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-config file, etc. We also have in-depth help articles, which will help you manage your FTP accounts should you experience any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for any of them, as we have not put a limit on this feature with any of our packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve created, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a specific account or to change its access path with a few clicks of the mouse. You can also delete an account effortlessly if you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve made different educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any effort in case you’ve never used a hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by our company will allow you to create unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which package you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software bundle that is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you host or even separate accounts for a single folder – if you want several users to be able to access the web content inside it with their own personal log-in credentials. With each of the available Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few clicks through a user-friendly web interface.
