FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used means of sending files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like with each of the Linux web hosting services that we offer, as we’ve decided not to limit this feature. Thus, you can maintain numerous websites all at once or give other people access to multiple directories. Once a particular task has been fulfilled and you would not like that person to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can edit the password for the particular FTP account or you can just delete the account with several clicks of the mouse and quit worrying about someone using it once again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with all web hosting plans, will permit you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes only one single mouse click to administer different options for any of them – to edit the password or the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are truly powerful, which makes them excellent for hosting a lot of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to update it, if needed. Furthermore, you can set up an account in a client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and installing it on your personal computer, which will save you time. If you’ve never had a hosting account previously, you can watch our comprehensive instructional videos, which are available in the exact same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting services that we are offering includes a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can create a separate account for any website hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different people to be able to access the very same folder with their very own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks of the mouse to create a separate FTP account for each one of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you won’t come across any impediment, even if you have no past experience in such matters.
