FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods of uploading and downloading files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will cope with the rest. There are several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to restart an upload/download if there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Any of the shared web hosting plans that we are offering will enable you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you’ll be able to manage the content of your Internet sites separately or to grant other people access to any site in your website hosting account. In case you have a web design software app installed on your home computer, you will be able to run numerous websites at once and to update them without efforts. If you provide the login information to another person to carry out a specific task, you will be able to edit the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with just a couple of clicks and prevent any risk of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For your convenience, all FTP accounts that you create will be shown in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting multiple websites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to set a limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different FTP account for each site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be listed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to modify it, if needed. In addition, you can set up an account in a client of your preference by downloading an auto-configuration file and running it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you’ve never used a hosting account before, you can check our in-depth instructional video clips, which can be accessed through the same Control Panel section.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the Linux VPS servers offered by us has a limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can set up a separate account for each website hosted on the virtual machine, regardless of whether it is under a domain or sub-domain. Furthermore, it does not matter which Control Panel you will pick when you order – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want different persons to set up a connection to one and the same folder using their own set of sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to create an FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not run into any difficulty, even if you do not have past experience in such matters.
