FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular means of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are several benefits of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution especially when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with any of the shared hosting that we’re offering, as we have decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can maintain multiple websites at the same time or give other individuals access to different directories. Once a given task has been done and you wouldn’t like that person to be able to access your website files any longer, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few clicks and quit worrying about anyone accessing it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared packages, will permit you to check the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected on the order page, since the FTP access is one of the default features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you wish through the Hepsia Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your web content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a given account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent people who have used it previously from accessing it again. The latter option is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or if an IT individual exits your firm and you do not want them to connect to the website files anymore. An exhaustive Help repository that comprises tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you don’t have any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans offered by us will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your Internet sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you buy and which hosting Control Panel you pick upon registration – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In any case, you will get FTP access to the machine without installing any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the basic software bundle which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or subdomain that you have or even several accounts for a single folder – in case you want different users to be able to connect to the content inside it using their own set of sign-in credentials. With each of the Control Panels, setting up, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of mouse clicks through a simple-to-work-with web interface.
