FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods of exchanging website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart a download/upload in case there’s a 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 connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best option particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You can create as many FTP accounts as you like with any of the website hosting services that we’re offering, as we’ve decided not to limit this service. In this way, you can have multiple websites all at once or grant other people access to different folders. Once a specific job has been fulfilled and you wouldn’t like that individual to be able to access your web files any longer, you can change the password associated with the FTP account in question or you can simply remove the account with a few clicks and stop worrying about somebody using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts, will permit you to check the full list of the existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically. It takes just one mouse click to manage various options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-config file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services are really powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a large number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to put a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our platform. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to edit it, if necessary. In addition, you can set up a new account in an FTP client of your choice by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your personal computer, which will save you time. In case you’ve never opened a web hosting account previously, you can check our detailed instructional videos, which are available in the very same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting services offered by our company has any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each website hosted on the virtual server, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll pick when you register – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. In case you want several persons to connect to the same folder using their very own login credentials, for example, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to create a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not have to deal with any problems, even if you have no prior experience in such matters.
