File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most widespread methods for sending web files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using FTP, among them the ability to resume an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the best solution especially when you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to create numerous FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can connect to. There’s no upper limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you like at any given moment. In case you would not like to use a given FTP account anymore or if a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You’ll be able to modify the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an elaborate Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also view the complete list of all the accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If necessary, you’ll be able to update the password for a given account or to change its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you don’t require it anymore – for instance, if you have hired a developer who’s finished with the website and you do not want them to access your website files any longer. For your convenience, we’ve shot a number of educational videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts without effort in case you have never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

In case you open a VPS plans with our company and choose any of the 3 Control Panels that we offer – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, an FTP server will be installed on your machine, since it is an integral part of the software suite that comes with all VPS servers ordered with a hosting Control Panel. This will permit you to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish and to indicate which directory each of them can connect to. If you want, you can even create several FTP accounts for one and the same domain and give different people their very own set of login details to connect to the website content. Any of the three Control Panels will give you the ability to create, to edit or to remove an FTP account in a few simple steps and with no more than several clicks of the mouse, so even in case you don’t have any previous experience, you will be able to administer an FTP account seamlessly.
