File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most famous methods for transmitting files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There are several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the Linux shared web hosting plans offered by us, because we’ve decided not to limit this feature. In this way, you can manage numerous sites at once or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. As soon as a specific task has been completed and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can change the password for the specific FTP account or you can simply delete that account with several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying about anyone connecting to it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers are amazingly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a vast number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to view the access path and to edit it, if needed. What’s more, you can set up the account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. In case you have never used a hosting account before, you can check out our in-depth how-to videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we are offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which plan you purchase and which hosting Control Panel you pick during the server order procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be provided with FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is part of the software stack that comes with the VPS plans by default. You can create one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you own or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – if you want a number of users to be able to access the website content in it using their very own login details. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, removing or editing an FTP account will require no more than a couple of clicks through a simple-to-navigate GUI.
