FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used means for uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are several pros of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to have 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, e-mails or other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Any of the shared hosting plans that we’re offering will allow you to set up an unlimited number of FTP accounts, so you will be able to manage the content of your Internet sites independently or to provide other people with access to any site in your website hosting account. If you’ve got a web design software program pre-installed on your home computer, you will be able to maintain multiple Internet sites at once and to update them without any effort. In case you give the login information to some other person for a particular task, you will be able to update the password for that FTP account or to remove it altogether with only a few mouse clicks and prevent any chance of unauthorized access to your web content in the future. For the sake of convenience, all FTP accounts that you set up will be displayed alphabetically in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers are stunningly powerful, which makes them ideal for hosting a large number of sites. Speaking of which, we’ve decided not to put a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate account for each Internet site that you host on our cloud platform. All FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account. For any of them, you will be able to check the access path and to update it, if needed. 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 PC, which will save you time. If you have never had a web hosting account before, you can watch our elaborate educational video clips, which can be accessed through the very same section of the Control Panel.

FTP Accounts in VPS Servers

None of the VPS servers offered by our company includes any limit on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate FTP account for any website hosted on your machine, no matter if it is under a domain or sub-domain. In addition, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you’ll select when you subscribe – cPanel, Hepsia or DirectAdmin, as an FTP server will be set up on the VPS during the installation of any of them. If you want different individuals to be able to make an FTP connection to the very same folder with their very own set of sign-in details, for instance, it’ll take a few mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an active account or modifying the folder that it can access is just as easy and you won’t have any difficulties, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
