File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most widely used means of transferring files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you can create, so you can have as many as you need at any given moment. If you do not want to use a given FTP account any longer or in case a designer has accomplished their job and you do not want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to view all currently existing accounts shown alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, and so on. We also have an in-depth Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts if you have to deal with any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts with access to the same folder – if you want several users to be able to access the same website content with completely different login details. Our semi-dedicated plans do not include a limit on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your files and to update your Internet sites without a hitch. If you want to block the access to your web content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You’ll be able to check all the accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For convenience’s sake, you can also download an auto-config file for a number of FTP client applications. Also, we have comprehensive help articles and instructional videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without any hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS hosting plans that we are offering has any limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create an FTP account for each site hosted on your server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. What’s more, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you order – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of people to connect to the exact same folder using their own personal log-in credentials, for instance, it will take a few clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not encounter any problems, even if you don’t have any past experience in such matters.
