FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular means for transferring files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re several benefits of employing FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you wish with any of the cloud web hosting packages that we are offering, since we’ve decided not to restrict this feature. In this way, you can run numerous websites at the same time or grant other individuals access to multiple directories. Once a particular job has been accomplished and you do not want that individual to be able to access your web files anymore, you can modify the password associated with the specific FTP account or you can just remove the account with a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone connecting to it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all web hosting plans, will permit you to see the complete list of the existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes just one click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for any of them, as we haven’t set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account without effort if you don’t require it anymore – for example, if you have hired a web designer who’s done with the site and you don’t want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For your convenience, we have selected a number of how-to videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

With a virtual private server from our company, you’ll have the opportunity to set up unlimited FTP accounts to access your website content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server configurations, no matter which Control Panel you have selected during the subscription procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Depending on your demands, you can have a separate FTP account for every Internet site or a number of FTP accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you want to allow different people to be able to access that folder with their very own login credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a web hosting account before or if you’ve only used a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties creating, deleting or editing any FTP account on your machine, since everything’s done through an easy-to-navigate web interface and takes only a few mouse clicks.
