FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most famous ways to exchange website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload if there is some problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best option especially when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

You can set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the shared hosting plans that we are offering, as we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can run numerous websites at the same time or grant other individuals access to multiple folders. Once a certain job has been done and you don’t want that person to be able to connect to your files any longer, you can update the password associated with the FTP account or you can just delete that account with a couple of clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it once more. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared web hosting packages, will permit you to see the full list of the active FTP accounts listed alphabetically. It takes just one single mouse click to administer various 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 Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP irrespective of the semi-dedicated server package that you have selected during the order process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you will get. All our plans include an unlimited FTP account quota, so you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you like through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not require a certain account any longer, you can just remove it and stop people who have used it before from accessing it again. The latter option is especially handy if you use the services of a web designer or in case an IT expert retires from the company and you don’t want them to access the website files anymore. A detailed Help repository that includes educational videos will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you do not possess previous experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS web hosting plans that we offer includes any cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each Internet site hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you join – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to establish an FTP connection to the exact same folder using their very own set of log-in details, for example, it will take a few clicks of the mouse to set up a different FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the folder that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not experience any impediment, even if you lack previous experience in such matters.
