FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means for uploading and downloading web files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There are several benefits of using FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. With 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, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and administering multiple FTP accounts will be incredibly easy with any of our Linux cloud website hosting. This feature is not limited, so using our easy-to-navigate Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with just one single mouse click from the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to see a list of all the FTP accounts that you have created and what directories they can access. Useful functions such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-configuration file for widely used FTP applications are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, as we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our intuitive Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also view the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a certain account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you do not need it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s finished with the website and you do not want them to access your web files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve shot different educational videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts effortlessly in case you have never used a website hosting plan before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages offered by us will enable you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you get and which Control Panel you select on the order form – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll have FTP access to the machine without installing any software, as an FTP server is an integral part of the standard software suite which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you host or even several accounts for one single folder – in case you want a number of people to be able to connect to the content in it with their very own set of login details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a couple of mouse clicks through an intuitive GUI.
