FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular methods of exchanging website files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is a problem with the connection and the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the perfect option when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be unbelievably easy with each of our shared hosting plans. This feature is not restricted, so using our simple-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks completed. If you hire a designer and they’re done with the website, for example, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with only one single mouse click via the Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the folders that they can access. Handy options such as changing the password or the path and downloading an auto-config file for popular FTP client programs are also just one click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting a large number of sites. Speaking of which, we have decided not to restrict the number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every semi-dedicated server account. For any of them, you’ll be able to see the access path and to update it, if necessary. Also, you can set up a new account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and running it on your PC, which will save you time. In case you’ve never used a hosting account previously, you can check our exhaustive tutorial videos, which are available in the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

With a VPS server from our company, you will get the chance to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts to connect to your web content. This is valid for all Virtual Private Server plans, regardless of the Control Panel that you’ve chosen during the order procedure – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin. Based on your necessities, you can create a different FTP account for every site or several accounts with access to a specific folder – in case you want to allow several individuals to be able to connect to that folder with their very own set of sign-in credentials. Even if you’ve never opened a hosting account previously or in case you’ve only had a shared one, you won’t have any difficulties setting up, deleting or editing any FTP account on your machine, as everything is done through an easy-to-use web interface and takes just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
