FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create 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, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting packages that we are offering will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to administer the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other persons with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design program installed on your PC, you’ll be able to maintain numerous websites simultaneously and to keep them up to date without any effort. If you give the login credentials to some other individual for a given task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to delete it completely with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and avoid any risk of unsolicited access to your content in the future. For convenience’s sake, all FTP accounts that you set up will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we haven’t set a limit on this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, along with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you will be able to edit the password for a specific FTP account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you do not need it any longer – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who’s finished with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we’ve selected different video tutorials, that will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts in case you have never used a hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages offered by us will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to administer the content of your websites. This is valid regardless of which Virtual Private Server package you buy and which hosting Control Panel you select during the registration procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. In any case, you will receive FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any software, since an FTP server is an integral part of the software stack which is included in the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – in case you want several persons to be able to access the website content inside it using their own sign-in details. With each of the Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account will require no more than a few clicks of the mouse via an easy-to-use graphical interface.
