File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most commonly used means of sending website files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will cope with the rest. There are several benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up 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 option particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the web hosting packages offered by our company, since we have chosen not to restrict this feature. Thus, you can have multiple websites simultaneously or grant other people access to separate folders. As soon as a particular job has been completed and you would not like that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can update the password for the FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about somebody connecting to it again. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all website hosting packages, will allow you to see the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one single click of the mouse to manage different options for any of them – to edit the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom-developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like, even different accounts with access to the very same directory – in case you want several individuals to be able to access the very same content with entirely different login credentials. Our semi-dedicated hosting packages don’t include any restriction on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you will be able to administer your web files and to update your sites without effort. If you wish to limit the access to your content, you can change the directory that an account can connect to or you can remove the account with no more than a few clicks of the mouse through the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For your convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP apps. What’s more, we’ve prepared comprehensive help articles and educational videos, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in a seamless way.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting that we offer includes any cap on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create an account for any site hosted on the Virtual Private Server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Moreover, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you subscribe – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want several people to be able to make a connection to the very same folder using their own login details, for example, it will take a couple of clicks of the mouse to create an FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not come across any complication, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
