FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods of exchanging website files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are a number of benefits of using FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages that we’re offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites separately or to provide other people with access to any Internet site in your web hosting account. In case you have a web design app pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to run numerous Internet sites simultaneously and to keep them up to date effortlessly. If you provide the login details to another individual to perform a certain task, you’ll be able to modify the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with only a few clicks of the mouse and avoid any possibility of unsolicited access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to edit the password for a particular account or to modify its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also delete an account with no effort if you do not need it anymore – for example, if you have hired a developer who is finished with the website and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve created a number of tutorial video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease in case you have never used a website hosting package before.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages that we’re offering has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an account for any Internet site hosted on the VPS, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you join – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different persons to be able to access the very same directory using their own personal sign-in details, for example, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not run into any complication, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
