FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is one of the most popular means for uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will handle the rest. There’re a number of benefits of using FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to 3rd-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up and administering numerous FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with any of our cloud website hosting. This feature is not restricted, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many accounts as you need to, in order to manage your sites and to get your web-related tasks done. If you hire a web designer and they are done with the site, for instance, you can modify the FTP password or delete the whole FTP account with just one single click of the mouse from the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you will be able to check a list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up and the directories that they can connect to. Useful functions such as updating the access path or the password and downloading an auto-configuration file for commonly used FTP software apps are also only one mouse click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to access your semi-dedicated server account via FTP regardless of the semi-dedicated server plan that you’ve chosen during the order process, since the FTP access is one of the standard features that you will be able to take advantage of. All our plans come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish via the Hepsia Control Panel with which you’ll be able to administer your web content as well. All the FTP accounts will be shown in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you do not need a given account anymore, you can just delete it and prevent persons who have used it previously from connecting to it again. The latter option is especially handy if you use the services of a web developer or in case an IT professional exits your firm and you don’t want them to access the website files any longer. An exhaustive Help section that contains tutorial video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you don’t have any past experience.

FTP Accounts in VPS

None of the VPS services that we’re offering includes a cap on the maximum number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any moment, so you can set up a separate account for any site hosted on the machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Furthermore, it does not matter which hosting Control Panel you will choose when you sign up – DirectAdmin, Hepsia or cPanel, since an FTP server will be set up on the virtual machine at the time of the installation of any of them. In case you want several persons to make an FTP connection to the exact same directory using their very own set of log-in credentials, for example, it will take a few mouse clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Deleting an active account or changing the directory that it can access is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any obstacle, even if you do not have any past experience in such matters.
