FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread methods for transferring web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There are several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download when there is 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 access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Any of the shared web hosting packages offered by our company will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you will be able to administer the content of your websites independently or to give other persons access to any site in your web hosting account. If you’ve got a web design application pre-installed on your computer, you will be able to maintain numerous sites at the same time and to keep them updated without any efforts. In case you provide the login information to some other person to perform a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it entirely with only a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any chance of unsolicited access to your website content from then on. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be listed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the plan that you’ve picked during the signup process, since the FTP access is among the standard features that you will be able to use. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many accounts as you want from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you don’t need a given account anymore, you can just delete it and stop people who have used it before from connecting to it again. The latter functionality is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT specialist retires from the company and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. An exhaustive Help repository that contains video tutorials will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not possess any prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS service that we offer includes any cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up an FTP account for each website hosted on your Virtual Private Server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. It also doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine during the installation of any of them. If you want a number of people to be able to set up a connection to the exact same directory with their own login details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t run into any problem, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
