FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means of uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will do all the rest. There’re several benefits of using FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Website Hosting

You will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you need with any of the website hosting plans that we’re offering, because we have chosen not to restrict this functionality. Thus, you can maintain multiple sites at the same time or give other persons access to multiple folders. Once a particular job has been fulfilled and you do not want that person to be able to connect to your web files anymore, you can update the password for the given FTP account or you can simply remove that account with a few clicks and stop worrying about anybody using it again. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with all shared hosting packages, will allow you to see the complete list of the active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order. It takes just one mouse click to manage different options for any of them – to update the access path or the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each of them, as we have not limited this functionality with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this through the FTP section of our easy-to-work-with Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the accounts that you have created, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If necessary, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can also remove an account effortlessly if you no longer need it – for example, if you’ve hired a designer who is finished with the Internet site and you do not want them to connect to your web files any longer. For the sake of convenience, we have compiled a number of tutorial videos, that will help you manage your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a hosting service previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we offer will allow you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to administer the content of your sites. This is valid irrespective of which plan you buy and which Control Panel you choose at signup – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel. In all cases, you will be given FTP access to the machine without the need to install any kind of software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software suite which comes with the Virtual Private Server packages by default. You can create one FTP account for each domain or sub-domain that you have registered or even different FTP accounts for a single folder – if you want a number of individuals to be able to connect to the web content inside it with their very own sign-in details. With any of the available Control Panels, creating, removing or editing an FTP account will take no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse via a simple-to-navigate web-based interface.
