FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most widespread means of uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re several pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection or the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other information, which makes it the best option especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous FTP accounts with just several mouse clicks via the Hepsia Control Panel and to select what web files and folders each one can access. There isn’t any upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you will be able to have as many as you like at any particular time. If you wouldn’t like to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a web designer has accomplished their job and you don’t want them to connect to the website content anymore, you can simply delete that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to view all currently active accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with different options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to change the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have an in-depth Help library, which can help you administer your FTP accounts if you encounter any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you wish, even separate accounts that can access one and the same directory – if you would like different users to be able to connect to the very same web content with totally different login credentials. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not involve any limit on the total number of the FTP accounts that you can have at the same time, so you’ll be able to administer your website files and to update your Internet sites without efforts. If you wish to block the access to your web content, you can change the directory that an account can access or you can delete the account with no more than a few clicks of the mouse via the Control Panel. You will be able to see all the accounts and to edit any of them, if needed. For the sake of convenience, you can also download an auto-configuration file for a number of FTP software applications. Furthermore, we’ve got elaborate step-by-step articles and video tutorials, which will help you administer your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the Linux VPS web hosting offered by us has a cap on the total number of FTP accounts that you can have at any given time, so you can create an FTP account for any Internet site hosted on your virtual server, no matter if it’s under a domain or subdomain. Also, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will select when you register – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia, as an FTP server will be set up on your VPS at the time of the installation of any of them. If you want a number of persons to be able to access one and the same directory with their very own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a few clicks to set up a separate FTP account for each of them. Removing an existing account or changing the directory that it can connect to is just as simple and you will not have to deal with any complication, even if you do not have any previous experience in such matters.
