FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used methods for transferring files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There are several pros of using FTP, among them the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the FTP connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Any of the hosting packages that we offer will enable you to create unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your sites independently or to give other people access to any site in your hosting account. In case you have a web design app installed on your home PC, you’ll be able to run multiple sites at once and to update them with no effort. In case you provide the login details to some other individual to carry out a certain task, you’ll be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few clicks of the mouse and prevent any chance of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like, even separate accounts that can access the same folder – in case you want different individuals to be able to connect to the exact same web content with different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not have any limitation on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to manage your files and to modify your sites without efforts. If you wish to block the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can remove the account entirely with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to view all the FTP accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP client applications. Furthermore, we have compiled exhaustive step-by-step articles and instructional videos, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the Linux VPS packages offered by us has any restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the VPS server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. It also does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you order – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several persons to be able to make an FTP connection to the exact same directory with their own login details, for instance, it will take a couple of clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as simple and you won’t encounter any impediments, even if you don’t have past experience in such matters.
