FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular means of transferring files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will do the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload if there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the ideal option especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without having to use any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting packages will permit you to set up multiple FTP accounts with only a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to define what files and folders each account can access. There is no upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you want at any given time. In case you don’t want to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has done their task and you do not want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active FTP accounts listed alphabetically, along with different options, which you can access with a single click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have a comprehensive Help database, which will help you manage your FTP accounts in case you have to deal with any complications.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to create as many FTP accounts as you want, even multiple accounts with access to the same folder – in case you wish several persons to be able to connect to the very same website content with entirely different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not involve any limitation on the maximum number of the FTP accounts that you can manage at a time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to modify your Internet sites effortlessly. If you wish to limit the access to your content, you can change the folder that an account can connect to or you can remove the account with no more than a couple of clicks through the Control Panel. You’ll be able to view all the FTP accounts and to modify any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-config file for different FTP apps. In addition, we have in-depth step-by-step articles and instructional video clips, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassles.

FTP Accounts in VPS Hosting

None of the Linux VPS hosting that we’re offering has any limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any site hosted on the virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your VPS during the configuration of any of them. If you want a number of users to establish a connection to the exact same folder using their own personal sign-in details, for instance, it will take a few mouse clicks to create a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can access is just as easy and you will not come across any complication, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
