FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most famous methods for transmitting files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution in case you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be pretty easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. This feature isn’t limited, so using our intuitive Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you need to, in order to administer your websites and to get your website-related tasks done. In case you hire a designer and they’re done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or remove the whole FTP account with only one click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For the sake of convenience, you’ll be able to view a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and what directories they can access. Handy options such as changing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for famous FTP client applications are also only a mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated plan that you’ve picked upon registration, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you’ll be able to use. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many accounts as you wish via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to administer your website content too. All the FTP accounts will be displayed alphabetically in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a particular account anymore, you can just remove it and prevent people who have used it previously from connecting to it again. This option is particularly useful if you use the services of a developer or in case an IT specialist quits the company and you do not want them to access the web files any longer. An in-depth Help section that comprises how-to videos will help you manage your FTP accounts if you have no past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by our company has any restriction on the total number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can create an account for each site hosted on the VPS, regardless of whether it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you’ll select when you order – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the configuration of any of them. If you want different people to access the same directory using their very own set of sign-in details, for example, it’ll take a couple of clicks of the mouse to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or changing the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t encounter any impediment, even if you do not have previous experience in such matters.
