FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widespread methods for exchanging web files between a computer and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you like at any given time. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account anymore or in case a web designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply remove the account in question. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with a single click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a comprehensive Help section, which will help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, as we have not set a restriction on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-navigate Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you’ll be able to update the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account without effort in case you don’t need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a web developer who is done with the Internet site and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For the sake of convenience, we have shot different how-to video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort if you have never used a hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from us, you’ll be provided with the option to set up unlimited FTP accounts to connect to your website content. This is valid for all VPS server plans, regardless of which hosting Control Panel you have picked during the signup procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your requirements, you can set up a separate FTP account for each site or a number of accounts with access to a particular folder – if you wish to allow several people to be able to connect to that folder with their own set of sign-in details. Even if you’ve never used a website hosting account previously or if you’ve got experience only with a shared one, you will not have any difficulties setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on the virtual server, as everything’s done through a time and effort saving web-based interface and takes only a few clicks of the mouse.
