FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most widespread methods of sending website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There are a number of advantages of using FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will permit you to create numerous FTP accounts with only a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you wish at any given time. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their task and you do not want them to connect to the web content any longer, you can simply remove the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to view all currently existing FTP accounts displayed alphabetically, along with various options, which you can access with a click. You will be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an exhaustive Help section, which will help you administer your FTP accounts in case you experience any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are truly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a lot of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve chosen not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a different account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you will be able to see the access path and to modify it, if necessary. What’s more, you can set up the account in your preferred FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your home computer, which will save you time. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our in-depth educational video clips, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS

The virtual private server plans that we are offering will allow you to create an unlimited number of FTP accounts to manage the content of your sites. This is valid regardless of which package you order and which Control Panel you select during the VPS order procedure – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin. In any case, you’ll be granted FTP access to the virtual machine without installing any kind of software, as an FTP server is an essential part of the software bundle that is included in the Virtual Private Server plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or sub-domain that you have or even several accounts for one single folder – in case you want different users to access the web content in it with their very own set of log-in credentials. With each of the offered Control Panels, creating, deleting or editing an FTP account requires no more than a few mouse clicks through a simple-to-work-with web interface.
