FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous means of exchanging web files between a PC and a web server. Using an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There are several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to third-party software.

FTP Accounts in Shared Hosting

Creating and managing multiple FTP accounts will be amazingly easy with each of our Linux shared hosting. This functionality isn’t limited, so with our simple-to-use Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to create as many FTP accounts as you have to, in order to administer your sites and to get your website-related tasks completed. In case you hire a developer and they’re done with the site, for example, you can change the FTP password or delete the entire FTP account with only one mouse click through the Control Panel. For convenience’s sake, you’ll be able to see a list of all the accounts that you’ve created and what folders they can access. Handy options such as editing the path or the password and downloading an auto-config file for widespread FTP software applications are also only a click away.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to create a different FTP account for each one of them, as we haven’t put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. You can do this via the FTP section of our simple-to-work-with Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you can also check the complete list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one can access. If needed, you’ll be able to modify the password for a certain account or to modify its access path with several clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you don’t require it any longer – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who is finished with the website and you do not want them to be able to connect to your website files anymore. For your convenience, we’ve created a number of video tutorials, that will help you administer your FTP accounts effortlessly if you’ve never used a hosting plan previously.

FTP Accounts in VPS Web Hosting

None of the VPS web hosting services offered by our company has a limitation on the number of FTP accounts that you can manage at any given time, so you can create a separate account for each site hosted on your virtual machine, no matter if it is under a domain or subdomain. Besides, it doesn’t matter which Control Panel you will pick 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 configuration of any of them. In case you want several people to access the exact same directory using their own login credentials, for instance, it’ll take a couple of mouse clicks to set up a different FTP account for each one of them. Deleting an active account or modifying the directory that it can access is just as easy and you won’t need to deal with any difficulty, even if you have no previous experience in such matters.
