FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread methods for uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best option in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without any third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia Control Panel and to specify what website files and folders each account can access. There isn’t any upper limit to the total number of FTP accounts that you can set up, so you can have as many as you need at any given time. In case you would not like to use a certain FTP account any longer or if a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to check all currently existing accounts displayed alphabetically, together with different options, which you can access with one click of the mouse. You will be able to edit the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have in-depth help tutorials, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you encounter any problems.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to create a separate FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t set a limit on this service with any of our packages. You can accomplish this via the FTP section of our easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have created, along with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a specific FTP account or to change its access path with several mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you no longer require it – for example, if you’ve hired a developer who’s done with the website and you do not want them to access your files anymore. For convenience’s sake, we’ve selected different tutorial video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts without efforts if you’ve never used a hosting service before.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we are offering has a limit on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can set up an account for each site hosted on the server, no matter if it’s under a domain or sub-domain. Also, it doesn’t matter which hosting Control Panel you will select when you order – Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, since an FTP server will be set up on your virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want several individuals to be able to access the very same directory using their own personal log-in details, for instance, it’ll take several clicks to create an FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an existing account or modifying the directory that it can connect to is just as easy and you will not have any problems, even if you don’t have any prior experience in such matters.
