FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widely used means for transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There are several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal option if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you want with each of the cloud web hosting that we are offering, because we’ve chosen not to limit this service. Thus, you can run numerous websites at the same time or grant other people access to multiple directories. As soon as a certain task has been carried out and you do not want that individual to be able to connect to your website files anymore, you can edit the password for the given FTP account or you can just delete the account with a few mouse clicks and stop worrying about someone accessing it once more. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with all shared accounts, will allow you to view the full list of the active FTP accounts shown alphabetically. It takes only one mouse click to administer different 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 Servers

If you host your sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for any of them, since we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. You can do this via the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you’ve set up, together with the folder that each one of them can connect to. If necessary, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to change its access path with a few mouse clicks. You can also remove an account with no effort in case you don’t need it any longer – for instance, if you have hired a designer who’s finished with the website and you don’t want them to connect to your website files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we’ve compiled different video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without efforts in case you’ve never used a web hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers that we offer has a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate FTP account for each website hosted on the virtual machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Also, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll pick when you join – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on the VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want a number of individuals to be able to make an FTP connection to the exact same directory using their very own set of sign-in credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of clicks to set up an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you won’t come across any complication, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
