File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most widely used means for exchanging web files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal 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 applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to specify what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of FTP accounts that you’re allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you want at any given time. In case you wouldn’t like to use a given FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their task and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with different options, which you can access with one single click of the mouse. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an extensive Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts if you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the plan that you have picked during the registration process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to make use of. All our packages include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you will be able to create as many accounts as you want via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your website content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and if you don’t require a certain account any longer, you can just delete it and prevent persons who have used it before from connecting to it again. This option is particularly useful in case you use the services of a web designer or if an IT specialist retires from your firm and you don’t want them to connect to the website files anymore. An exhaustive Help section that contains instructional video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have prior experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by our company will permit you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you purchase and which Control Panel you choose on the order page – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will be granted FTP access to the server without the need to install any software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the standard software stack that is included in the VPS packages by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you own or even multiple accounts for a single folder – in case you want different users to be able to connect to the content in it using their very own sign-in details. With any of the offered Control Panels, creating, removing or modifying an FTP account takes no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use GUI.
