File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most famous methods of sending web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Hosting

Our hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each account can connect to. There is no upper limit to the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you can have as many as you like at any particular time. If you would not like to use a certain FTP account anymore or if a designer has fulfilled their task and you don’t want them to access the web content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to check all currently existing FTP accounts shown in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with a single mouse click. You’ll be able to edit the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an extensive Help library, which will help you administer your FTP accounts should you come across any difficulty.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a separate FTP account for each of them, since we have not limited this feature with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, along with the folder that each one can connect to. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a particular FTP account or to change its access path with a few clicks. You can also remove an account without any effort if you do not require it any longer – for example, if you have hired a web developer who’s done with the Internet site and you don’t want them to be able to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we have compiled a number of instructional videos, that will help you administer your FTP accounts with ease if you’ve never used a website hosting package previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

In case you open a Linux VPS web hosting packages with us and select any of the 3 Control Panels that we are offering – Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel, an FTP server will be installed on your virtual machine, since it is part of the basic software pack that comes with all VPSs ordered with a Control Panel.

If you want, you can even set up different accounts for one and the same domain and give a number of individuals their own set of sign-in credentials to access the content. Any of the three hosting Control Panels will offer you the option to create, to edit or to delete an FTP account in several simple steps and with less than a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you’ve got no past experience, you will be able to administer an FTP account without any hassles.
